Physiotherapy and Posture
Good upright posture is very important in preventing pain and tightness in muscles and joints. Poor posture over several years while doing the same repetitive work causes discomfort which gradually becomes pain and stiffness in the neck, shoulders and back.
If your head sits more forward than recommended, retraining is needed to change the head position and bring it in alignment with the rest of the body. This retraining can involve many aspects of Physiotherapy – examination, stretching and strengthening exercises. Increased stress may lead to increased muscle tension and postural abnormalities.
