Postural Assessment

Specialist treatments in St Albans

How can Postural Assessment help you?

Postural assessment aims to evaluate a person's body alignment and posture. It involves observing the person's standing, sitting, and lying positions, and noting any deviations from the ideal alignment. During the assessment, your physio will look at the position of your head and neck in relation to shoulders, spine alignment, pelvis position, alignment of knees, ankles, and feet, positions of arms and shoulders in relation to the trunk. They may also look at how your posture changes during certain movements. The goal of postural assessment is to identify any imbalances or misalignments in the body that may be contributing to pain, discomfort, or movement dysfunction. These imbalances can result from a variety of factors, including poor posture habits, muscle imbalances, joint stiffness, and injury. 

Postural Assessment is a key component of our physiotherapy approach that helps us identify differences in your body alignment that may be contributing to pain and discomfort. The process involves a detailed evaluation of your standing, sitting, and moving posture, as well as an analysis of specific tasks or activities that may be influenced by your posture. We examine the alignment of your spine, shoulders, hips, knees, and ankles, as well as the balance and tension in your muscles. Any postural imbalances identified can often be the cause or a contributing factor to musculoskeletal issues.

what client says about us

Sitting at the desk for hours and suffering from bad back pain is the worst, and that's when I came to Ebrahim. Instead of a short term fix, Ebrahim allowed me to progressively build strength and stop the pain, while also allowing me to understand what's causing it and also how to prevent it in the future. My back injury came from sitting at the desk and was also related to football, it was at a point that it hurt when lifting any weight or bending my back. After just over a month, my back and flexibility feels a million times better than before, and if anything my balance and flexibility is improving, which has made my posture better. Thank you Ebrahim!
