What is Posturology?

Posturology is defined as “the science of human balance in every physiologic condition.” It is the study of human posture, its optimal alignment and the effects of postural distortion. Our modern human environment, which often consists of many hours of sitting and sub optimal physical conditions, leads to imbalances along the postural chain. Injuries, surgeries, trauma, pregnancy, and repetitive movements also contribute to distortions in human posture.

 

It is the mission of Align Bodywork to offer a service that addresses the underlying postural causes of pain and dysfunction. And ultimately, through alignment, to help you find your best quality of life!
