Posture, Daily Stretches, Strength & Flexibility.

For overall good health of your musculoskeletal system, the most ‘Important Overall Posture’ is balance or alignment. Strength and flexibility in daily stretches is so important to maintaining a good posture, so keep a Check on your Posture.

Many of us have visited the Doctor’s or seen a physiotherapist about pain we are experiencing in some part of our body. We are advised stretching exercise. Do we do them? How often? Do we do them until we feel ‘better’ then stop? 

Here is a link from he Chartered Society of Physiotherapy website for patients and public. Which exercise have you been given?  

My advise – keep stretching every day of your life. 

If for any reason you are experiencing tension, focus on where you have ‘pain’ and understand many ailments are caused by our repetitive poor posture. We need to address this and alter our posture before its repetitive poor alignment results in pain and disability! 

So if you find you already do all of the above but still have pain, make an appointment at Holistic Therapy at Captain’s Den for an assessment and bespoke treatment.
