“Good posture is the state of muscular and skeletal balance that protects the supporting structures of the body against injury or progressive deformity” (Posture Committee of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons)
Good posture is often associated with holding a static position, but this is not the case. In order to protect the body against injury/deformity, the body must be able to maintain balance whilst moving.
The muscles in our body are arranged in chains; combinations of muscles that work as one unit rather than in isolation. If one of the muscles in the chain becomes weaker/stronger it will create an imbalance in the chain and dysfunction will strike. If not corrected, this dysfunction can prevent the body from moving in healthy patterns and will inevitably cause damage resulting in pain/discomfort.
The Postural Analysis and Corrective Exercise (PACE) clinics have been specifically designed to identify any postural weaknesses and to supply you with the exercises to correct them.
If you are suffering from any recurring injuries, aches or pains, then speak to Chris to find out how a PACE session could help you.
