Our posture changes depending on what we are asking our body to do and forms a foundation to execute movement. Being able to adapt your posture and maintain and control your body plays an important part in rehabilitation.
Injury to our nervous system can change our posture and make moving very difficult. Having weakness through one side of your body following a Stroke will often cause compensation through the use of the stronger side. This can lead to greater problems down the line in recovery.
Gradual changes in posture occur with everyone, but understanding the root cause can help achieve better results.
