Common Causes Of A Poor Posture

Posture changes slowly, as life and it’s challenges takes it’s toll.  The main causes include:
pain
Long hours sitting at work or on screens, curled forwards and passive
pain
Back pain that makes it hard to straighten up
pain
Not enough exercise, weakening reflexes and muscular support of the spine
pain
Stress, worry and mental health challenges
pain
Just getting older, and losing that natural tone you used to have

Poor Posture Explained In Plain English

Life is a struggle against gravity. It wants to pull us down, and sometimes we struggle to lift ourselves up again. We can get stuck, and we stoop or get rounded shoulders.

Present even in children, the tendency to sag a bit is insidious.

Sometimes posture problems resolve with time, or exercise. More often the problem doesn’t get better properly and just get gradually worse.

But now for the good news!

Just as you can get worse, so you can get better. With the right analysis, treatment and advice, the vast majority of postural issues can be improved. It can be hard or impossible with just exercises, but treatment plus exercise plus lifestyle means real improvement is not just possible, but the simple logical outcome of steadily moving in a better direction.

What Are The Major Causes Of Poor Posture?

We've already dealt with some of the common causes such as strain. However, let’s dive in a little deeper to see how Osteopathic care provides a safe solution for:

Rounded Shoulders

This is something your mother warned you about. Gradually we curl forwards and our shoulders narrow. Often associated with static lifestyles.

Scoliosis

The spine twists under the strain it is under, and you just can't figure out how to straighten it out again.

Kyphosis

Here your mid back bends forwards, so your neck has to go back to compensate - the result, stiffness and you get shorter!

How Does An Osteopath Correct Your Posture?

An Osteopath will only use their hands and brain to skilfully and logically assess your problem. Is it part of your makeup? How stuck is it? How did it get to be this way? We train for many years to feel what is normal and what is in trouble, and Osteopathy is a fantastic method for getting your body back in tip-top shape again. Here is a before and after photo so you know change is possible with our treatment and advice!

the neck is in a sharp curve
Here the back is in a long curve backwards which comes back level with a sharp kink in the neck.
Back is straighter, longer
See how the back is straighter, longer, and the neck is now upright.

We don’t use machines or ask you to do endless exercises that you find difficult and don’t help. We just get your body working properly by aligning everything, and getting the parts talking to each other. Treatment is typically very gentle and relaxing. Lengthening and straightening comes naturally without drugs or surgery.

This means you can be well in a truly natural way, by in the end the miracle of your body healing itself.

From clients benefiting from a better quality life

We went to see Katherine for our 4 month baby who was very agitated during the nights. Katherine was very thorough in her investigation, explaining in details what she was doing. She was extremely kind and gentle with our baby. The sessions tremendously improved our boy's sleep. Plus she's super friendly so it's always nice as parents to go and see her! We cannot recommend her enough, thanks Katherine!

I’ve been seeing Constantino (Tino) for my treatment, he’s helped me very much. He’s very good & professional at what he does. I previously had a lot of problems with my neck, stiffness and pain, which was affecting my daily life. After a few sessions the pain has gone away. I’m able to do the things I enjoy again. Tino is a very good Osteopath, the best around in my experience.

I had back pain in the latter stages of my pregnancy and Verena used a combination of osteo treatment and suggested exercises to realign my hips and loosen my back in order to alleviate the pain. I was impressed of her knowledge of all things pregnancy related and felt in very safe, capable hands. Highly recommend.

I have been seeing Verena for about a month now and I am very happy with both the service and results, my only regret is i wish i had came to see her sooner!I feel every session is always informative, detailed and the treatment is always in depth. It has really speeded up my sports injury so that i can get back to it.I will be continuing to visit frequently for a general MOT and could not recommend the clinic and Verana enough.

I visited Verena for my back pain, tension, neck pain in my body due to having a new baby who had a feeding and sleeping problem. Her amazing hands released the pain and tension in my body just after 2 sessions, she also recommend some exercise for me to do at home, that exercise really helps my body. Thanks a lot Verena, looking forward to my session tomorrow.

We visited Verena for our 4 month baby sleep problem and tongue tie. After the first session, our baby relaxed a lot and had a great sleep for the next couple of days. Verena’s magical hands have released all the tension from our baby and our baby is much happier when breastfeeding. Looking forward to our 3rd session tomorrow morning. It really changed our life in a better way, thanks a lot, and highly recommended.

Went to see Giulia with a terrible back, shoulder and neck pain. She sorted me out and other long term issues. I’m painless, taller and straighter! Really happy I met her.

Melinda has been amazing! She’s really helped me to recover postpartum and I wish I visited her during my pregnancy. I had quite a few complicated issues due to my pregnancy and she really helped me to feel like myself again. My postpartum recovery wouldn’t have been the same without her. Thank you so much with your magic touch!

Excellent service and very professional. I was in a lot of back pain and Tino fixed it after just the first appointment! He also recommended some great exercises to prevent it happening again - I would highly recommend.
