Osteopathy is effective in assessing postural problems and associated pain. As a general rule, poor posture is caused by a mixture of bad habits and bad environments. If you work in an environment that means that you have to remain seated for long periods of the day (such as sitting at a desk or driving) then you might consider seeing an osteopath to help improve your posture during the day. Our osteopaths can advise you on ways to improve your posture to prevent future back problems and/or to alleviate any aches and pains that you have already developed.
