Postural Assessment & Dysfunction - Physiotherapy Singapore
In our physiotherapy clinic, we often provide postural
assessments and postural correction for our patients. Some of
these patients may be aged, some are relatively young, but ultimately, they all
have muscular imbalances and joints wear and tear due to prolonged poor posture
as well as poor balance that causes the postural imbalances in the first place.
It is often debated as a chicken and egg problem, that poor
posture causes wear and tear or wear and tear causes poor posture, but we don't
subscribe to that.
Fundamentally, it is a vicious cycle where both occurs at
the same time - a patient may have weaker muscles, that causes more wear and
tear on specific joints that contributes back to muscles being set in poor
biomechanics, which can also have a constant, general ache and pain that can
progressively get worse over time.
Long term poor positioning and posture causes a chronic and
consistent muscle and joint increased stress. By providing a passive and active
stretch force to the over-used muscles, combine this with a strengthening
program to increase the strength and stamina of weakened muscles, we help our
patients to achieve muscular balance, that improves mobility and decreases
pains and aches.
To manage postural issues such as these, a combination of
physiotherapy intervention as well as regular deep tissue release. What regular
deep tissue release does is to loosen scar adhesions, tight knots, shortened or
tightened muscles (see other benefits of deep tissue release here).
What the physiotherapist will do is to identify the core
cause of the problem through thorough clinical interviews as well as biomechanical
and physical tests. We will deal first with the pain, but one can also expect
progressive strengthening and customized exercises as well, which needs to be
done consistently over a six to twelve weeks.
