Through a thorough postural assessment, every patient here with Texas Orthopedic and Physical Therapy Institute receive an individually-tailored program that takes into account your lifestyle, any injuries and your personal strengths, weaknesses, goals and aspirations. Posture is necessary in everyday life. When the body's posture is out of alignment it begins to compensate for the imbalance causing muscle tightness, decreased flexibility, and eventually the onset of pain. If left untreated, this can also lead to injury and or poor athletic performance. Postural alignment therapy seeks out the root of the pain. By treating posture and its dysfunctional habits you can eliminate the reason why pain occurs, prevent common injuries, and increase athletic performance. After your initial session at Texas Orthopedic and Physical Therapy Institute, you may experience that you are walking and standing taller, improved balance, and slight to moderate pain relief. This however, may only last for a brief period of time. The body has yet to learn how to hold this new posture and therefore reverts back to its original dysfunctional state. With continued therapy and training your posture will become more and more functional providing long lasting and permanent pain relief. After our Texas Orthopedic and Physical Therapy Institute therapist educate and personalize your at home exercise program these simple yet effective exercises are easy to do on your own without the supervision or assistance from others.
