Postural Misalignment & Scoliosis

Postural Misalignment & Scoliosis

A good posture is essential to avoid and prevent injuries and allow us to move through an entire range of motion. Poor postures can cause rounded shoulders, muscle imbalances, neck pain, and cartilage degeneration which causes pain, muscle fatigue, a protruding belly, and overall body aches. Not only those, but poor postures can also cause decreased blood flow and decreased spine mobility.

Scoliosis is a spinal disorder where the spine curves to one side or the other resembling the letter ‘S’ or ‘C,’ and it can be seen when looking from the back or the front. It often occurs in childhood and adolescence.

Treatment for ​​​Postural Misalignment & Scoliosis

Physiotherapy can help by decreasing stiffness and restrictions and improving muscle strength to improve posture. This improvement in posture can enable our muscles to move and work efficiently and reduces stress on the joint surfaces and ligaments that hold our skeleton together. Therefore, our body can use less energy during movement.

Our physiotherapists at Fizo Kare Physiotherapy can solve these issues by providing an assessment to identify which structures are shortened and which need strengthening. Then, an individualised treatment plan will be customised and designed according to the patient’s postural assessment, symptoms, daily activities, and needs. Other treatment modalities are also provided to reduce the impact of psychosocial factors on the pain and symptoms.
