What does postural correctional therapy consist of?


Most chronic injuries or chronic pain have other postural muscles involved that hold in the dysfunction if these aren’t addressed you will find treatment only offers a short term relief if any at all. By treating the tissue surrounding the musculoskeletal issue, the muscles are in an optimal position to restore mobility and function.


The treatment consists of assessment of holding and compensation patterns contributing to the presenting issue. Dry needling is used to facilitate the release of the postural and compensation muscles involved.
