Steps to Better Posture For Office Workers

better posture

Do you think you have poor posture? Do you think your desk is to blame? What steps have you taken to improve your posture? Often times people answer yes to those first two questions but haven’t always followed through with doing something about it!

At Melbourne Combined Natural Therapies we often have clients coming to see us with a variety of aches, pains, feelings of stiffness, reduced range of movement and so on, often citing poor posture to be the likely cause. We can help to improve your symptoms with remedial massage, myotherapy, Alexander technique and low level laser therapy and hopefully manage the cause as well.

All physical therapies aim to reduce pain by relieving the tightness in over-worked muscles, encouraging weak muscles to work properly, improving blood flow and reducing inflammation. We have a variety of techniques at our disposal; massage primarily uses hands-on manipulation of the soft tissues, Alexander technique is essentially postural re-education and learning how to use your body more efficiently,  and low level laser therapy uses light to encourage healing in a similar way to ultrasound or TENS.

If you would like to know more about our services, please drop in to the clinic to have a chat or call 9645 9923. We’re conveniently located in Melbourne CBD on Little Collins Street on the middle level of the Southgate complex in Southbank.

Stretching

We have a stretch library available with videos of various stretches that can help you to maintain your muscles in between remedial massage sessions.

Stretching can help you to reduce tension in tight muscles that can be pulling you into a compromised position that may be aggravating or causing your current symptoms.

If you would like to know the specific stretches you may require, book in for a session and we can advise you as to which stretches would suit you.
