Poor Posture Solution in Fulham

Common Causes Of A Poor Posture

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


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


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.

Osteopath Reviews 

From clients benefiting from a better quality life

Melinda is the best you can get!! I went to see her after my scan showed my baby in breach position. Melinda put me at ease and the adjustments she made were totally pain free and relieved tightness in my back. Within 36 hours my baby turned… totally amazing. This may not work for everyone, but it’s worth a go … especially over the likely stress and pain that comes with the ECV hospital treatments.

I cannot speak highly enough of the service here. I came on the advice of a freind with a suspected frozen shoulder, which at the time was astonishingly painful. It turns out that it was likely a partially dislocated shoulder, and thanks to the brilliant analysis and help of Omer it is now on the mend. The help and advice was spot on, and I'll make a habit of coming with any muscular problem in the future.Put simply, if you have a problem this is the place to go. It is absolutely amazing.

My 8 month old daughter had treatment with Giulia at Fulham osteopath as she wasn’t meeting some milestones and we were a little concerned. Giulia was very welcoming and reassuring right from the beginning.When my daughter had her first treatment with Giulia, the next day she was able to meet that milestone as if nothing had happened, we were amazed at how quickly the treatment worked and we were really pleased to see that.Giulia recommended to have two more treatments for her and with those treatments things just got better for her in regards to meeting her milestones.We highly recommend Giulia for anyone who might be facing the same concerns for their little ones.

I have been treated by Verena Leo at Fulham Osteopaths in the last few months for a hip imbalance which causes complications such as trochanteric tendonitis and bursitis. But of course she looks at the skeleton as a whole. She has a very informed and gentle approach, which I like. She never rushes things, explains well and gives exercises to help further at home. I am pleased and have brought my teenage daughter, who has posture issues, to be treated by her too. Definitely recommended.

I have been intermittently using Fulham Osteopaths over the years and always had a really positive experience. Recently, Omer has been incredibly helpful, I went in due to an aching shoulder that had been bothering me for a couple of months, and not only has he really helped with that, but my recent sessions have made my whole back feel looser. I can feel the difference day to day and appreciate it enormously.
