URBAN ATHLETE POSTURE SCREENING

Stronger posture begins with an assessment.


Good posture helps your balance, prevents injury or overuse problems, and reduces back pain and muscle pain. Put simply, good posture aligns all your body parts to work together more efficiently. Slouching, slumping, holding the phone between your ear and shoulder and wearing high-heels encourage bad posture. Over time, muscles weaken and can no longer hold your body in the correct position.


How’s your posture?


Before you develop back pain, neck pain, headaches or hip pain - you should get your posture evaluated and then take action for posture correction. If you already have these issues then an evaluation can help illuminate your imbalances, so that you can work to fix them.


In addition a posture screening can reveal imbalances and asymmetries that can lead to stress, poor health, poor performance and even make you look older before your time.


Improving posture can help:


  • Back pain
  • Neck and shoulder issues
  • Headache
  • Youthful appearance
  • Sports performance
  • Rehab after injury
  • Strengthen balance
  • Slenderize
  • Move well to age well


A posture picture is worth a thousand words, and provides compelling visual evidence of improvement (or decline), as well as providing important data for tracking postural changes and performing  appropriate posture exercise rehab protocols. Poor posture resulting from our own activities and habits are easier to resolve with basic postural awareness and home exercises. Urban Athlete screenings measure distortions in degrees to clearly identify symmetry, balance, improvements or changes.

The Screening Includes:

  • Advanced posture analysis
  • Emailed PDF report
  • Suggested exercises based on analysis

GUIDE TO GOOD POSTURE

  • Feet and knees should be hip distance apart and facing forwards.
  • Knees should be soft but not bent.
  • Your pelvis should be half way between north and south tilt - that is half way between thrusting your pelvis forward and sticking your bottom out.
  • Your shoulder blades should be gently held downwards and inwards (back and together).
  • Your head should be in line with your spine - to achieve this imagine a helium balloon coming out from the top of your head lifting your head towards the sky.
