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:
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.
