Postural Assessments and Training in Abu Dhabi
Your posture plays an important part in your overall health. At Chiropractic UAE, we offer postural assessment testing that allows us to identify and address the root cause of your poor posture. As Abu Dhabi’s premier chiropractic center, we will provide you with advanced testing and treatment that will lead to better outcomes.
What Is a Postural Assessment?
A postural assessment takes a look at your posture whether you are in the standing or the seated position. This test allows our chiropractor to see if you are experiencing any postural imbalances that may be causing you pain and discomfort. After the testing has been completed, our chiropractor will be able to create a chiropractic care plan tailored to your needs.
Why Is Postural Assessment Important?
If you have recently sustained a sports injury or have been involved in an accident, the resulting load on the body can lead to poor posture. Over time, poor posture can lead to reduced mobility and chronic pain. Left untreated, poor posture can harm your overall health. A postural assessment will be able to quickly find the source of the posture issues and address it through chiropractic treatment.
Unhealthy Posture Types
Several postures deviate from a healthy posture. Here are some of the most common types of unhealthy postures:
- Kyphosis - This posture causes an abnormally curved spine. This posture can lead to chronic back pain and stiffness.
- Flat Back - A flat back posture is defined by a forwarding positioned head and a hunched upper and lower back. This posture forms a distinct C-shaped curve that can cause pain in the lumbar spine, mid-back, and lower back.
- Swayback (Lordosis) - With this posture type, the hips are moved forward. This creates an exaggerated curve in the back.
- Forward Neck or Head - With this posture, the head or the neck is in the forward position. This can cause chronic pain in the neck.
Through a postural assessment, we will be able to determine your exact posture type and recommend treatment accordingly.
Benefits of Good Posture
Good posture allows your muscles to evenly support the weight of your body. Proper posture will also make you appear taller, healthier, and more confident. The benefits of good posture over time are substantial, and maintaining it will help you live a healthier life.
