What is posture training?

Poor posture doesn’t just look improper — it can also cause back, neck, and muscle problems over time. Unfortunately, once bad postural habits have been developed, they can be difficult to correct.

Many patients find that they need the help of a physical therapist to correct bad posture habits. Patients who experience back or neck pain can consult with a physical therapist to determine if posture is the root of their discomfort. If it is, a physical therapist can create a personalized routine to strengthen the muscles in the back, improve posture, and alleviate the associated symptoms of pain and discomfort.

Addressing associated conditions with posture training

Poor posture can have numerous adverse health effects, from exacerbating existing conditions to causing entirely new ones. For example, poor posture is known to make arthritis symptoms worse, as malalignment of the spine can place excess pressure on the joints. It can also contribute to back and shoulder pain, headaches, and difficulty breathing.

Poor posture can also negatively impact circulation, which can eventually lead to the development of varicose veins. It can also negatively affect energy levels and mood. There’s evidence to suggest that it can even weaken pelvic floor muscles and thus adversely affect sexual function.

The conditions that most commonly require posture training include:

  • Arthritis
  • Back and shoulder pain
  • Poor circulation
  • Headaches

The benefits of posture training?

Many patients with poor posture can benefit from physical therapy. Firstly, a physical therapist can help to identify and target the exact problems with the patient’s posture, developing a therapy routine that’s tailored to the patient’s problems and goals.

Physical therapy has been shown to effectively correct posture over time, relieving pain in the back, neck, and shoulders. It’s recommended that patients who struggle with poor posture work with a physical therapist, as correcting postural habits can be very difficult without the assistance of a professional.
