Postural Correction
Back Pain and Physiotherapy Singapore

Postural correction physiotherapy is a physiotherapy-guided exercises of correcting muscle imbalance through exercise, stretching, and awareness training. It can treat the most commonly imbalanced muscles such as the anterior pelvic tilt deficit (causing the belly to protude/stick out as well as a indentation in the lower back), and the other second most common is the shoulder-hunched with head-neck protusion. Both contributes to back pain and/or neck pain and aches, and can usually be corrected with physiotherapy posture correction exercises and stretches.

To start the correction physiotherapy, we must first understand what is muscle imbalance and what causes it - a muscle imbalance is caused by poorly supported or weakened joint and joint tissues and muscles surrounding the joint. This constant state of prolonged stretch or constriction leads to some tissues and muscles shortening in length and some becoming weaker than others. Some gets overused and gets stronger. This causes imbalance of the integrity of joints and muscles. Often, regular deep tissue release can help.

Muscle imbalance are usually caused by a combination of factors, such as sedentary lifestyle (decreased activity and exercises, long hours seated etc), improper postural and mobility habits and poor awareness. Our body adapts to situations, so if we start sitting too long, we conform to the shape of our workstations and worksites; if we stop exercising, we conform to the mass of one who does not exercise and if we overeat/eat unhealthily, we conform to one who is that. The anterior pelvic muscles weakness is primarily caused by prolonged sitting, because the flexor muscles of the hips becomes shortened and tight, and the muscles of the back becomes weak and loose, leading to low back pain.

Physiotherapy postural correction for anterior pelvic tilt muscles

Too much anterior pelvic tilt imbalance increases the indentation in the back and gives rise to the belly/abdomen protuding outwards, often contributing to back pain in many of the clients we see.

To start off after the physiotherapy postural correction assessment, we will begin with the application of hotpack over the tightened and weakened muscles to loosen the structures, followed by gentle passive stretches to further stretch tight muscles. Following that, patients will be given a range-of-motion exercise program to increase the active range of motion for the affected joints to loosen the muscles and joints, before we provide them with a set of strengthening exercise to strengthen up weakened muscles.

Often, we will pair the physiotherapy treatment session with a mirror-awareness session, so that patients would gain an insight to the postural habits they carry, to increase the awareness of how their bodies actually move, to correct any postural deficits and limitations.
