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.

I took my baby to see Katherine to help with sleeping issues. She immediately noted areas of tightness causing him pain and after one session he was sleeping through the night. After four sessions he was a different baby, sleeping and eating batter leading to a much happier baby. I wish I had taken him earlier!

Andrew Cotton is such professional, experienced, gifted, caring and talented Osteopath. I am so lucky to have found him to resolve a neck issue which was giving me the most horrendous pain in my shoulder and migraines. I was in agony when I first arrived and a few sessions later, I am now pain free, have a much greater range of movement and able to turn my neck again! Such a brilliant result! Thank you Andrew for your talent.

We’ve had a really great experience with the treatment Melinda has given to our little boy with torticollis. She’s a very kind and professional individual and obviously good at what she does.

I first discovered Fulham Osteopaths as a sleep-deprived first time Mum - I did not know what osteopathy was before then! I am so grateful to have Fulham Osteopaths as part of my community - Melinda is so lovely (as are her staff!) and the practice exemplifies holistic care that is critically missing in many parts of our health system. Now my whole family receives care from the practice and every time, no matter the niggle (or emergency!) we receive excellent care throughout. Many thanks!!
