Posture Training in Shelton, CT

Posture is one of the most important things to keep in mind as you go about your day. Improper posture can directly affect the health of your muscles, ligaments, tendons, nerves, and more. 

As part of our guided exercise program, we provide posture training in Shelton, CT. 

If you want to improve your posture, here's how we can help.

What is Posture Training?

Posture training is so much more than just learning to sit or stand up straight. Posture training involves properly aligning your skeletal system during all of your daily activities, whether you're working at a desk, driving your car, or walking around the grocery store. 

Posture training is all about teaching you how to maintain proper alignment throughout your spine. 

Even if you don't realize it, there are a lot of times when you might be twisting, bending, or standing in an awkward way that puts unnatural pressure on your neck and spine. 

Posture training makes you more aware of this and helps you adjust to a natural, comfortable position when standing, sitting, and walking.

Health Issues Caused by Poor Posture

You might be surprised to learn that poor posture is the cause of your chronic headaches or worsening arthritis. 

Poor posture can lead to many different health issues, including: 

  • Headaches 
  • Arthritis 
  • Back and shoulder pain 
  • Poor balance
  • Poor circulation 
  • Poor gait mechanics
  • Varicose veins 
  • Fatigue 
  • Improper breathing

Poor posture creates unnecessary stress on certain joints and muscles. This leads to pain and discomfort, which, when left untreated, can decrease quality of life.

Can Poor Balance Be Improved? 

Yes! That's the entire goal of our program – poor balance can be improved with consistent balance exercises. That is, as long as you remain active and work through a customized exercise program. 

Not everyone has the same balance issues, so finding a general solution online or using the same exercises a friend uses isn't a guaranteed fix for your balance problems. 

If you choose Moving With H.O.P.E. for your mobility journey, you'll have the full attention of an Exercise Physiologist who is dedicated to helping you regain your balance and confidence.

How Long Does It Take To Improve Balance?

Balance isn't something that will get better overnight – the length of time it takes to improve your balance depends on what's causing your balance problems and how often you're able to attend exercise sessions. Consistency and effort are key. 

For example, someone looking to improve their balance after a recent injury might improve in a few months. On the other hand, someone suffering from a neurological illness could require indefinite balance treatment exercise.
