Postural Training

What are the risks of poor posture?

Your skeleton is designed to withstand the pull of gravity and support your body without expending much energy. 

When you have poor posture, other structures like your muscles, joints, and spine have to compensate for the responsibilities of the skeleton. Poor posture forces your body to work harder to support itself when sitting, standing, or lying down. 

Over time, the stress of poor posture can cause a number of different issues, including:

  • Headaches
  • Migraines
  • Fatigue
  • Short or shallow breathing
  • Back pain
  • Neck pain
  • Impingement
  • Shoulder pain
  • Hip pain
  • Knee pain
  • Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) pain


Postural training helps you effectively reverse and prevent these conditions. Improving your posture is a simple way to enhance your overall health and free yourself from chronic or persistent pain. 

If you suffer from a postural disorder, High Line Rehab PT has experience using posture training to improve spinal flexibility and relieve pain. 

What are postural disorders?

Postural disorders refer to several types of abnormal posture. If you suffer from a posture disorder, your body is consistently out of alignment, increasing your risk for migraines, body aches, and balance issues. The most common postural disorders include:

  • Kyphosis 
  • Flat back
  • Forward head
  • Sway back


Postural disorders affect patients of all ages and can result from a number of different conditions, including obesity, osteoporosis, degenerative disc disease, and fractures.  

What is postural training?

Postural training refers to a number of techniques used to improve your body’s alignment. High Line Rehab PT uses posture exercises to strengthen your core, shoulder, and back muscles. This gives your body the support it needs to maintain proper posture. 

Your physical therapist also performs 30-minute deep-stretching sessions to increase your flexibility and enhance your overall sense of well-being. Improving your posture has a number of benefits, including increased energy and pain relief. 

High Line Rehab PT also provides fall-prevention techniques for seniors and aging patients. Good posture improves balance and helps you avoid excess stress on your muscles, joints, and spine.
