Posture Clinic Brisbane

A postural strain is the result of constant poor posture, (for example desk and computer work), and/or repeated movements involving poor posture (for example working on a laptop or tablet or in a tight space). Over time, this leads to straining of structures in the head, neck and back and is one of the most common and deeply imbedded causes for patients to present to the clinic.

Posture is the most talked about and the least understood aspect of human design despite likely being one of the most widely affecting and important body system to your health. It is so incredibly defining to general health and wellbeing but is often only understood in terms of general appearance and physical performance or a sore neck and shoulders

Posture is not only linked to how we look but how we feel, how we interact and engage with others, it is also extraordinarily important for the correct and efficient functioning of other body systems such as digestion, respiration (breathing), cardiovascular and hormonal function, and many systems beyond strain and discomfort directly experience in your muscles and back.

Research indicates that our posture and the ability to move is directly linked to wellbeing and potential life span. Postural age exists in a different paradigm to chronological time orientated age and is a foundational predictor of many illnesses including heart disease, diabetes, the risk for certain fractures and falls and other serious systemic diseases.

At Head Above Healthcare‘s Posture Clinic, we practice ‘Postural Neurology”, which assesses the function of the nervous system and creates clear objective measures of how well it is functioning. Postural Neurology is a practical, objective, measurable, and scientific approach to treating the human design and allows a clearly defined purpose for treatment with an equally clear demonstration of improvements from your immediate presentation in clinic.

When you attend the clinic for ‘Postural Neurological Assessment” expect rigorous testing and measuring of your sensory system, movement, balance, coordination, and of course your alignment. These will all be recorded and used to produce a report of findings toward creating a treatment and management plan to improve posture and work toward postural fitness and lifelong postural competence. These goals are not unobtainable and are in fact our given birthright, it is however ironic that in the modern and so-called advanced world we live in that the state of postural decline is increasing and affecting people more seriously and younger than ever. Technology has raced ahead and left the ages-old human design in a mess, in fact, the postural decline is directly proportional to the rate and spread of interface-based technological leaps.

Head Above Healthcare offers you the unique opportunity to take steps to improve your posture with the most comprehensive and direct means possible by assessing the place where it all the starts ‘Your Brain’. Once your level of postural health is defined, a combination of structural alignment and brain-based postural exercise is prescribed showing you the path toward reclaiming your birthright of the retainable and perfect postural design.
