Postural Assessment & Dysfunction
Over the course of time, a combination of poor posture and unbalanced motion not only leads to joint wear but creates a muscle imbalance. This unfortunately kickstarts a vicious cycle that results in further muscle and joint stress. Low grade aches and pain, which can potentially progress into something more severe, is also often experienced.
To help our patients overcome such problems, Gold Standard's Chartered Physios utilise a specific, proven Strength and Flexibility programme, which focusses on strengthening the weaker muscles whilst stretching the overused ones. Thanks to this programme, new muscle patterns will develop, which will reduce and eliminate pain. Over time, strong, lubricated joints shall also emerge.
