Posture is something most of us take for granted. We tend to only think about it when something goes wrong. But having poor posture can be the cause of, or contribute to, many ongoing issues such as:
  • Neck, back or shoulder pain
  • Tight and tender muscles
  • Headaches
  • Contribute to respiratory problems such as asthma and breathing difficulty
  • Lack of energy
  • General irritability or low moods
  • Sleep difficulties

Having an osteopathic treatment for your posture may improve your body awareness, stability and strength

At St Kilda Osteopathy, we can provide professional assistance in achieving and maintaining good posture.  We will thoroughly assess your standing, sitting and lying postures and show and teach you the correct positions and techniques to maintain these postures.
