The musculoskeletal system
The musculoskeletal system of the human body is similar to the engine of a car, every structure has its set place and function and for normal movement all of these structures have to work perfectly together; if one muscle is over used then an imbalance between the structures will follow and this can lead to injury and pain.
For example in the modern world of “desk jobs”, computer and phone use and long distance travel, most people spend long periods of their day sitting in poor postures: this changes the mobility of joints and effects the length, strength and timing of muscles and will eventually cause decreased movement, inflammation and pain.
Your posture assessment
At PhysioCare we can carry out an assessment of your posture and muscle function and define a tailor made treatment to help you: no matter how complex is your problem is, we can help you call us.
