We have a far-reaching reputation for success and preventative measures to assist in the relief of on-going back and associated skeletal pain and posture issues.
People with postural imbalance issues tend to like to lean on things. Shopping is much easier pushing a trolley around and they tend to push their lightly laden shopping trolleys all around Westfield because it makes it so much easier to walk. If they have nothing to lean on then some of them tend to walk or stand with their hands folded behind their backs to counterbalance their imbalance.
Generally though, balance is important and even people without posture problems or back pain should be able to (and are encouraged to) stand on one leg for more than 30 seconds. It seems that a significant amount of adults lose this ability with ageing and are thus predisposed to falls.

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.
