Posture Analysis with the DIERS Formetric
Is your posture at risk?
We conduct posture screening assessments for both adolescents and adults to identify “at risk” individuals and implement appropriate management and treatment strategies.
We implement pre-hab, pre-surgical training and re-hab, post-surgical exercise programs for spinal surgery patients. We evaluate non spinal postural imbalances and implement appropriate management and treatment strategies.
If you think you or your child has a postural problem, or you have been diagnosed with a condition that might pre-dispose you to a postural problem then a baseline postural assessment might be required. We can determine if it is a recognisable and progressive/non-progressive postural problem or no problem yet but could develop into one. We have world leading measurement techniques to monitor potential progression from baseline and develop appropriate management, prevention and treatment strategies.
Because posture correction is critical to your future well-being, our Clinic conducts daily posture, strengthening and osteoporosis classes to assist in the on-going treatment and management of back and associated skeletal pain.

What happens in a DIERS Formetric Screening?
The Scan will usually take 10-15 mins and is conducted by one of our physiotherapists.
The Formetric scans the body with light to create a 3D reconstruction of the spine showing clinical analysis of the body and posture, scoliosis, and all forms of spinal deformities.
The results are available immediately and the Physios will go through them with you.
Using the Schroth Method for scoliosis and spinal deformity:
Using the Egoscue Method:
As we are certified through the Egoscue University, Posture Alignment Therapy empowers you to correct your alignment, leading to a resolution of pain, prevention of injury, increase in performance capacity and an increased general sense of well-being.
Postural alignment therapy is based on the premise that the human body has a specific design posture and that deviations away from the design posture can cause pain, either at the site of the deviation or elsewhere in the body.
