It is important to identify and correct postural attributes of an individual when we start working with a new client. Potential problems can be highlighted and prevented from developing into problems in the future.
Those that suffer existing postural problems may know too well that they can lead to secondary issues like lower back pain and headaches. This can be hard to diagnose because it may not seem immediately obvious that a posture is associated to the complaint being suffered.
Modern society can inherently lead to postural issues where driving and sitting positions are adopted for extended periods of time and are not always ideal.
Whilst we will always take postural alignment into consideration, sometimes it is favourable to spend more time focusing on these issues and carry out a full assessment before progressing to any other training program – a program may even be required to correct an existing condition.
