Osteopathy to correct posture

Posture plays a key part in keeping our bodies performing at their best. Poor posture over a long period of time can cause many symptoms and problems, including pain, earlier and quicker onset of wear and tear, reduction in range of motion, and weakening of soft tissues. It can also result in symptoms such as headaches, chest pains, acid reflux and breathing difficulties. Osteopathy can correct your posture and teach you how to hold your body, meaning you can be free of the painful symptoms you may be experiencing.

Want to talk to us about posture and finding a solution to your pain? We’re here to help. Call 020 3759 6474 or email info@osteowellbeing.co.uk to book an initial consultation with an experienced osteopath.

What symptoms might you be experiencing?

Poor posture can result in many symptoms, including:

  • Aches and pains in various areas of your body
  • Fatigue
  • Breathing difficulties
  • Your head sitting too far forward
  • Hunched shoulders

These symptoms can disrupt your everyday life, so it’s important you get a professional diagnosis. Our team of osteopaths can help you work towards better posture to rid you of painful symptoms.

What may be causing issues with posture?

  • A work desk that’s not set up correctly, whether you’re working in an office or at home
  • Sleeping with the incorrect pillow height or mattress firmness
  • Using a computer without the correct glasses prescription if you have poor eyesight
  • Looking down a lot e.g. parents looking down when feeding their babies, or people looking down at their phones or books for long periods of time

Many issues can cause poor posture and it can be difficult to correct without the help of a professional. We’ll help you correct your posture to give you relief from pain and discomfort.

    How can osteopathy help you achieve better posture?

    As osteopaths, we consider your body holistically to help you have better posture and relieve your symptoms.

    Osteopathy can:

    reduce

    Realign your spine
    and other areas in the body to give the best possible chance of holding a good posture.

    Release tension
    in muscles and increase range of motion in joints, allowing you to correct your posture.

    Help to correct
    your posture in the long term. Your osteopath can teach you postural exercises to do at home to give you the best possible chance of correcting your posture.

    Reduce symptoms
    caused by poor posture. For example, if your poor posture has resulted in breathing difficulties, osteopathy can release the diaphragm and muscles between your ribs, ensuring they are moving correctly so you can start breathing properly again.

    Tips for correcting posture


    Give yourself time off from your job, your phone, your hobbies; walk around, do a couple of exercises, take some deep breaths and refocus your mind. Why not explore our wellbeing drop ins for some ideas?


    Every time you think of your posture, correct your positioning. We can help you find the correct positioning in the first place.


    make sure to set up your desk correctly so your computer is at eye level. Your keyboard/mouse should be as close to you as possible, so you’re not pushing your shoulders forward for a long period of time. Don’t be tempted to hold your phone between your ear and shoulder with no hands!


    so your spine is straight and aligned.

    Posture can be difficult to correct on your own, as habits tend to stick. Our team can help you correct your posture safely and make you more mindful of the ways you hold your body. With our help, you can feel the benefits of good posture.

    Case study:
    solving excruciating back pain

    Find out how we helped rid our client of back pain so he could resume his active lifestyle.

    Problem

    Our patient came to us with excruciating back pain. He usually led an active lifestyle and also ran a very large spa hotel, so he was active at work too. He was upset that he could no longer continue with his usual activities.

    Solution

    After just one session our patient’s excruciating back pain had disappeared. After a couple of months of regular sessions and exercises provided for him to do at home, he noticed a huge improvement in his posture and his back ache. He still has the odd session whenever he feels his back needs an MOT, and he’s been able to resume his active lifestyle.

    What did our patient think?

    The excruciating back pain that I had suffered from went on the first treatment as Süheyla had quickly identified the problem. I am now having regular treatments by Süheyla and carrying out specific exercises to stop re-occurrence. My posture is certainly improving and I have no pain. Her regular treatment and recommended exercise routine has been extremely beneficial and helped me, as a 55 year old, return to a very active lifestyle including hiking in the Scottish Highlands and recreational cycling in the Olympic Velodrome!
