The Geelong myotherapists at Geelong Natural Therapies can prevent pain by helping patients to achieve better posture.

Correct posture is vital for the biomechanical working of the body. Even a slight misalignment from the correct position can cause dysfunction of movement and eventually pain.

This is important because of the long amount of hours people are spending in a sitting position – mainly computer desk jobs. Sitting for hours in a poor position can stress joints, tighten up and shorten muscles, while other muscles lengthen and become weak. This results in headaches, pain and increases stress.

The myotherapists at Geelong Natural Therapies aim to reduce muscle contracture, stretch tight muscles and strengthen weak ones and ultimately relieve the aches and pains that come with long hours spent in front of the computer at desk jobs.

So, if you spot anyone slowly sinking in their desk, send them o the myotherapists at Geelong Natural Therapies so they can “Live life, don’t just exist”. Contact us via email or phone (03) 52228766.
