Postural Restoration

Postural Restoration

“A good stance and posture reflect a proper state of mind.”

– Morihei Ueshiba

Posture is the result of repetitive functional patterning within multiple systems of the body. The patterns we create in the body affect our ability to breathe, our range of motion, and to rest symmetrically. Repetitive and faulty movements create misalignment and imbalances often being the root cause for pain and mobility problems. Back 2 Normal Postural Restoration program examines posture for multiple systems within the body. Our method combines several forms of therapeutic modalities including the MELT Method, Pilates, Core and Corrective Exercises in order to create a strong and comprehensive structural foundation. At Back 2 Normal PT you will get a customized package to improve your unique body’s postural features.
