Posture Treatment in Jersey

im spine how are youGood posture not only affects your health but how well your clothes fit, how well you perform athletically and more. At The Wellness Centre (Castle Quay), our team of experienced chiropractors can help address postural issues in patients of all ages.

What People Notice

Slumped shoulders, downcast eyes or a sagging midsection send subtle clues to others around you. Your posture is the first thing people notice about you. Your posture often reveals underlying spinal problems such as vertebral subluxations. Poor posture may harm a child’s development, can impair an adult’s mental health and compromise your health.

Thorough Examination

During our examination, we notice postural distortions such as:

  • Head tilt to one side
  • Forward head carriage
  • Lowered shoulder
  • High or rotated hip
  • Unnatural stride
  • Contracted leg length
  • Unusual shoe wear
  • Weight imbalance

Poor posture is one of the ways your body deals with stress. Notice the posture of someone who is depressed, frightened or angry! If the eyes are a window to the soul, then your posture is a window to your health!

At The Wellness Centre (Castle Quay), we offer a full Digital Posture Assessment using the latest in technology to enable our patients to see exactly what we as practitioners see! To find out more about our PostureScreen, please follow this link.

Frequently Asked Questions

What therapies do you use to correct posture?

We work together as a team to help our patients to realise their perfect posture. Our chiropractors help to normalise the function of the joints and associated nerves and muscles, while our physiotherapist and sports therapists focus on guiding our patients through a detailed exercise-based rehabilitation program. As a team, we help our patients function at their best.

How long does it take to overcome lifelong poor posture habits?

Maintaining a good posture is an ongoing, lifelong process. However, one will start to see improvements after just a few weeks of taking part in our postural rehabilitation program. At the end of this rehabilitation program, each patient will have the knowledge and ability to continue looking after their posture independently.

Patient Success

Miss B, an 18-year-old student, presented to the centre with upper back pain, headaches and concern over her poor posture. Her assigned chiropractor conducted a full health history, a full orthopaedic examination and a Posture Screen.

From these examinations, it was evident that Miss B was suffering from biomechanical dysfunction of her mid-back and neck, causing excess pressure on the surrounding muscles and nerves, ultimately leading to the symptoms of back pain and headaches. The examination also revealed that Miss B had a mild, full spine scoliosis (side curvature of the spine) which was likely contributing to some of the biomechanical dysfunctions noted.

Miss B was recommended for a course of care consisting of chiropractic spinal manipulation, muscle relaxation soft tissue techniques and an exercise-based postural rehabilitation program. It was also explained to Miss B that the scoliosis had likely been present since her early years and that the care program proposed would help to improve her posture but would not take away the scoliosis. However, well-balanced back and core muscles, together with a healthy spine, would help to minimise scoliosis over the years.

As Miss B embarked on the suggested postural correction/rehabilitation program, she soon noticed a marked reduction in her back pain and a full resolution of her headaches. She also felt stronger and had more energy than before beginning her program. As Miss B progressed in her recovery, she started to implement her postural exercises into her day-to-day life and into her weekly exercise plan, enabling her to take control of her own future good posture.
