Postural Syndrome

Postural syndrome refers to discomfort and pain which result from prolonged poor posture and positions such as slouching or extended standing. People who sit for prolonged periods of time at work, watch lots of TV, or frequently text are particularly at risk for postural syndrome.

Signs and symptoms of postural syndrome:

Classic findings are burning or aching in the neck, back, or shoulders that worsen the longer the poor posture is maintained, and improve when the posture is changed.


Treatment for postural syndrome

To be most effective, treatment of Postural Syndrome requires a commitment to develop new postural habits.

We actively treat the pain associated with Postural Syndrome with a variety of stretching, strengthening, and core stability exercises that we prescribe according to your exam findings.

Depending on your needs, other treatment may include chiropractic adjustments, trigger point therapy, ultrasound or interferential current for pain relief, Kinesiotape, soft tissue therapy such as Graston or Active Release to address soft tissue components and foot orthotics.
