Maintaining good posture can become more challenging as you age. This can be due to tightness and weakness of muscles that stabilize the spine.
Poor posture can also lead to other health concerns including:
-Increased risk of falls
-Decreased ability to properly swallow, chew and breath
-Increased pain and other joint problems throughout the body
Physical therapy can assist by improving posture with stability exercises, stretching and increasing self awareness. Contact Drayer Physical Therapy for more information on how you can improve your posture!
