At Harbour clinic, before any consultation begins your therapist will perform a complete postural analysis and explain the findings to you. Most of us are aware that our shoulders may be uneven, our head tilts to one side, leg length discrepancies, forward head posture but under estimate how damaging it can be to our body and joints. Spinal pain, headache, mood, blood pressure, pulse and lung capacity are among the functions most easily influenced by posture. Many symptoms including pain may be moderated or eliminated by improved posture.
One of the most common problems is forward head posture. Since we live in a forward facing world and the repetitive nature of our lifestyles have forced the body to adapt to a forward head posture. The result can often be muscle fatigue and an aching neck and shoulders.
