Posture is usually defined as "the upright well-balanced position of a human being".
When someone has pain or other complaints, looking at the posture is important to treat symptoms and causes.
Postural or biomechanical dysfunctions start before feeling any pain or symptoms.
Why is it important to do a postural assessment?
- To prevent and treat any symptoms
- To explain and teach you how you can work and re-educate your body
Apart from looking at your body (front, side, back) in different positions, we consider also how someone utilises his body throughout his life (repeated movements, sports, frequent & sustained postures...). This help to understand, treat and prevent any musculoskeletal complaints.
