What is postural restoration?
If you’re suffering from low back pain and haven’t found relief through typical physiotherapy, medicine, or other therapies, keep reading. This blog article discusses what your treatment may be lacking and what is Postural restoration therapy.
At the elite physiotherapy & sports injury centre, we focus on human asymmetry and how to connect the feet, pelvis, ribs, and skull to reduce pain.
People’s bodies have run out of movement possibilities and are overusing the same muscles, joints, and movement patterns all the time. When these muscles and joints are overworked, they “tighten” and create extra discomfort. We investigated these human asymmetries and developed a battery of tests and strategies to improve movement potential, reduce muscular tension, and reduce pain experience.
The majority of low back pain is caused by an increase in lower thoracic and lumbar spine extension, such as an arched back with lower flared ribs. The muscles around the spine have become shorter and tonic as a result of this arrangement. They can also compress the spine, resulting in lumbar disc herniation or irritation of the nerves that run through those muscles. Patients frequently experience pain when bending forward, sitting for extended periods of time, or picking something up.
How can we alleviate pain, improve movement, and restore optimal muscular actions?
Our physiotherapist uses different techniques and methods to reduce your symptoms and works on the root cause of your symptoms.
Physiotherapy treatment in Postural Restoration includes:
90/90 Hip lift- This approach reduces muscular tone in the low back while increasing the ability to recruit the deep abdominals required to integrate the rib cage and pelvis.
Stretching exercises- such as hamstring stretching, hip flexor stretching, etc.
Strengthening exercises- such as resistance exercises for Gluteal muscles, strengthening of adductor Magnus muscle, Core strengthening, etc.
Mobilizing or manipulating the lumbar spine or sacrum.
Soft tissue mobilization.
Cupping and dry needling therapy.
In addition, use customize insole.
Along with, Electrotherapy, TECAR therapy, Laser therapy, etc.
