Prognosia team is internationally qualified in Posture alignment Therapy and they believe our body as a single unit.

What is posture therapy?

Posture therapy is a method of restoring the body back to its functional design posture, alleviating pain and allowing people to get to an active, pain-free lifestyle. Our patients come to us with one thing in common: They have tried multiple modalities to eliminate chronic pain without an understanding of why their symptom is present. As a Postural Alignment Specialist, PROGNOSIA helping to change its focus from a symptom-driven approach to a cause-driven approach.

Perfect Alignment – When you are asked to stand up by your physiotherapist, he or she is able to see how your ankles, knees, hips, spine, shoulders and head are positioned over each other. If they are neatly and symmetrically stacked over each other then you have the perfect alignment. If not, then there is a problem in your posture alignment and this needs to be corrected for you to have a stronger and stable body. 

Poor Alignment – Weak undeveloped muscles are the root cause of poor alignment. There are a whole lot of muscles in your body which help in maintaining perfect alignment.

What are the effects?

Postural misalignments cause certain muscles to compensate and can make them more susceptible to injury and pain. Joints that function less efficiently due to muscular imbalances can lead to abnormal wear and tear, impingement and pain. Ultimately, the ‘unexplained’ source of many health conditions is that your body does not work the way it was designed.

How to assess posture imbalance:

The strength and length of muscles involved in joint motion must be balanced. The balance is based on the force couple (two or more translatory forces that in combination produce rotation) principle among muscles involved in the three cardinal planes of motion. When a force couple is out of balance, the segment moves off its axis of rotation and there is faulty joint motion. The head, trunk, shoulders and pelvic girdle serve as the foundations, from which forces are directed to the limbs.

Postural faults can be used as guidelines for identifying alterations in muscle and ligament length. This may occur when one muscle groups become tight and the antagonist elongated. Synergistic muscles around a joint may be unbalanced as well as the agonists.

Minor alignment faults in posture limit motion and lead to tightness of muscles and other soft tissues. Muscles that are elongated often develop their maximal force in the stretched position and are weak in the normal physiological position.

Alignment of body segments should be observed while the person is standing still and during such movements as walking, to detect faulty patterns of muscle activity and joint mobility. The better the quality of movement and the better the alignment of gravitational forces through the joint’s axes, the better is the sequence of motion. When postural alignment improves, imbalances are minimized.

Our Solution

If there is moisture on the wall it obviously means that there is some seepage into the wall. You do not keep painting the wall without finding out the cause of this seepage. Similarly gobbling painkillers, using braces, doing random exercises or considering surgery will not solve the problem unless we attack and conquer the underlying cause. Our technique, on the other hand, aims to tackle the root cause of your pain – which in many cases is poor posture. Prognosia expert therapist Dr. Sarvotam Chauhan is international posture alignment specialist and his team modifies gentle and targeted posture correction exercises to correct the posture and bring your body into a better alignment. The aim is to end your current pain (if you have any), feel more confident about how you look and reduce your risk of future pain and injuries.
