POSTURAL RE-EDUCATION

It is very important to have good posture. The majority of our days are spent sitting at work or in front of a computer screen. It is important to be aware of the negative impact this has on our bodies. Posture is a very important and vital component of our health, wellness and overall balance. Good posture is very vital in order to maintain our spinal and muscular health.

Our posture gives us the ability to maintain correct upright symmetrical positions of the spine. The spine, head, neck, pelvis and limb should be in symmetrical positions when you are standing, walking and during active movement patterns of the body as well. Our posture is not only a position, but also a dynamic pattern of specific reflexes that we build stereotypes for due to repetitive motion. Furthermore, a good and correct posture will allow you to breathe better and you will be less prone to muscle hypertonicity.

Proper posture will allow you to keep your muscles, ligaments and bones in position that will decrease wear and tear of joints and relieve stress and even prevent pain.

Our goal and approach is to provide patients with the best functional customized treatment plans- with emphasis on personalized attention and commitment to excellence that distinguish MAYWOOD PHYSICAL THERAPY AND REHAB CENTER as one of the premier providers of Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation in Bergen County, New Jersey.
