Posture Care

Treatments You Can Trust

Good posture is important for your long-term health and can prevent pain, injuries, and other health problems. It involves holding your body correctly whether you are moving or still. The key to good posture is the position of your spine, which should maintain its natural curves. Learn how to improve your posture with Willow and Water.

Poor posture can be bad for your health. It can cause numerous health problems.

  • Misalign your musculoskeletal system

  • Increase pressure on the spine, making it more prone to injury and degeneration

  • Cause neck, shoulder, and back pain

  • Decrease flexibility

  • Affect how well joints move

  • Affect balance and increase risk of falling

  • Make it harder to digest food

  • Induce breathing disorders and affect the surrounding structures including the heart and phrenic nerve

  • In women it can lead to imbalance in the core muscle leading to incontinence and/or pelvic organ prolapse

The Key to Good Posture

The key to good posture is the position of your spine. Your spine has three natural curves - at your neck, mid back, and low back. Correct posture should maintain these curves, but not increase them. Your head should be above your shoulders, and the top of your shoulder should be over the hips. Learn how to achieve this in all parts of your life through the Posture Care Program.

The Benefits of Posture Care

Posture Care can help reduce back and neck pain. It helps people improve their sitting and standing coordination as well as their ease of movement, which may reduce wear on the musculoskeletal system and prevent spinal compression. People who have received this type of therapy may find they have increased lung capacity and greater productivity and endurance when performing repetitive work. Improved social confidence and easier speech may also result.

Some people with Parkinson’s disease have found it somewhat easier to perform daily tasks after receiving this type of massage therapy, and many also report feeling better overall about their condition.
