Postural dysfunction can happen in one of two ways. The first type is as a result of a direct injury such as a car accident or a slip-and-fall. The second type develops over time as a result of prolonged postures sustained for work demands or for hobbies. This second type can be particularly puzzling as people have pain and "I didn't do anything!"
The challenge to improving symptoms and correcting both of these types of dysfunction is that the brain is unaware of the compensation mechanisms that we adopt in order to continue to function. The most effective way to help overcome this obstacle is to use visual feedback to help retrain both the mind and body.
