If you notice that you are regularly injuring yourself, even if only in minor ways, it may be time to consider changing your posture. All kinds of muscular injuries can be the result of nothing more than bad posture and even those who seem to carry themselves extremely well may actually still be holding their heads in the wrong position or slumping certain parts of their body so that their alignment is not correct.
Posture can play a big part in keeping our muscles healthy and even just slight changes to the way in which we carry ourselves can bring extremely positive results.
However, it may not always be obvious whether or not your posture is good or bad unless you consult a professional, and if your alignment is not right, no amount of massaging or rest will ultimately resolve the fact you are prone to injuries.
Visiting a West London physio may therefore be beneficial even if you do not have a major injury. Small niggles and little aches and pains may all be a direct result of poor alignment and speaking to the right physio will allow you to find out how you should be standing, walking and sitting, and allow you to make changes accordingly.
Initially, a new posture may feel completely alien and it may even seem that you look extremely weird in this new position. However, the body can get used to a new posture very quickly and you may find that within just a couple of weeks that you are holding yourself in a correct manner and that it feels totally natural. As such, a simple consultation with a physio in SW18 may be all it takes to banish the majority of your aches, pains, niggles and injuries for good, and feel far happier and more confident as a result.
