Assessing posture and movement helps us to work out what muscles may be impacting negatively on your ease of mobility. These posture issues can then be addressed with exercises and stretches in a stability and mobility program, which may help to improve muscle balance.
In each assessment, we are looking to see what posture error is occurring and which muscles may be compensating for the deviation. We are looking for which muscles may be tight and which muscles may be lengthened. Tight muscles need to be stretched with a flexibility program and lengthened muscles can be helped by a strengthening program.
