Correct Postural Dysfunctions and Re-educate Your Movement Patterns

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. 

How It Works

This comfortable modality detects the electricity that is produced in your muscle when it contracts. This helps give us information about which muscles you are using to produce movement. Here is what happens during the session:

  • The therapist attaches electrodes to your skin

  • You will be asked to perform a series of movements or muscle contractions

  • The electrodes send signals to the monitor representing muscle activity

  • The images or measurements produced help us understand which muscles you are using to perform the movements

  • We can then use the visual feedback to "up-train" underactive muscles or "down-train" overactive muscles

Through these processes, we can help you fully recover from an injury and prevent compensation consequences from developing, such as arthritis or degenerative disc syndrome.
