At Prognosia Advanced Physiotherapy Clinic in Gurgaon, our internationally qualified team specializes in Postural Alignment Therapy. We strongly believe in viewing the body as a single unit, and our approach is centered around restoring the body to its functional design posture. Our goal is to alleviate pain and enable our patients to lead active, pain-free lifestyles.
Many of our patients have tried various modalities to eliminate chronic pain without understanding the underlying cause. As Postural Alignment Specialists, we strive to shift the focus from a symptom-driven approach to a cause-driven approach, addressing the root issues behind the pain.
Perfect Alignment –
When you are asked to stand up by your physiotherapist, they will assess how your ankles, knees, hips, spine, shoulders, and head are positioned in relation to each other. If these body parts are neatly and symmetrically stacked, you have perfect alignment. However, if there is misalignment, it indicates a problem that needs to be corrected for a stronger and more stable body.
Poor Alignment –
Weak and undeveloped muscles are often the root cause of poor alignment. There are numerous muscles in your body that play a role in maintaining perfect alignment.
Effects of Postural Misalignments –
Postural misalignments can lead to compensatory movements in certain muscles, making them more susceptible to injury and pain. Muscular imbalances can cause joints to function less efficiently, resulting in abnormal wear and tear, impingement, and pain. It is important to recognize that many health conditions may stem from the fact that our bodies are not functioning as they were designed to.
Assessing Posture Imbalances –
Balancing the strength and length of muscles involved in joint motion is crucial. The balance is based on the force couple principle, which involves two or more translatory forces that produce rotation. When the force couple is out of balance, the segment moves away from its axis of rotation, causing faulty joint motion. The head, trunk, shoulders, and pelvic girdle serve as foundations, directing forces to the limbs.
Postural faults can serve as guidelines for identifying alterations in muscle and ligament length. This can occur when certain muscle groups become tight while their antagonists become elongated. Both synergistic muscles around a joint and agonists can be unbalanced. Minor alignment faults in posture can limit motion and lead to muscle and soft tissue tightness. Elongated muscles often develop their maximal force in the stretched position but are weak in the normal physiological position. Assessing body segment alignment while standing still and during movements like walking helps detect faulty patterns of muscle activity and joint mobility. Improved postural alignment minimizes imbalances.
When there is moisture on a wall, it indicates seepage. In such cases, simply painting over the wall will not address the underlying cause of the problem. Similarly, relying solely on painkillers, braces, random exercises, or considering surgery will not solve the issue unless we address and overcome the root cause. Our technique aims to tackle the underlying cause of your pain, which often stems from poor posture.
