Many lower back, knee and even wrist problems are caused or exacerbated by improper posture. Additionally, as a person ages their posture naturally degrades as a result of gravity’s affect on the body over time and that can cause pain and other physical problems. Posture re-education techniques can improve common joint pain and can also allow individuals to maintain a more active lifestyle as they age.
New York Sports Medicine and Physical Therapy can teach you how simple posture friendly changes in your everyday routine can make a world of difference in diminishing current or future pain and improving overall physical health.
