Sort Your Posture Out: The Mission

The primary goal of this site is to help you try to sort out your posture before you experience pain or damage yourself.

Although the chances are that you found this site because you already have!

In which case I will provide some tips on; who to see, what to ask, and what you can do about it.

I will also try to:

  • Help you try to identify what went wrong in the first place.
  • Help you to work out how to restore your posture.
  • Help you to learn more about how your body works.
  • Show you some exercises & stretches that may help.
  • Dispel a few myths.
  • Babble on about anything else I find interesting!

What I won’t do:

  • Give specific diagnosis to individual members/posters.
  • Recommend any products or services on this site that I don’t believe in.
  • Link to people who I don’t feel know what they are talking about.
  • Give advice on areas that I know nothing about.

Remember you are ultimately responsible for your own body, look after it as it has to carry you for a long time. However we all need help sometimes (even personal trainers and physical therapists). If you are in pain or think you need help go and see a professional. Don’t take risks with your health.

I would like this site to help as many people as possible so if you think any of the information here would be useful to people you know please link to it on your site or the social networking platform of your choice.

  • With regards to bracing can you please help me. I am confused about the roll of the back muscles. When bracing i am breathing in through the diaphram then bracing for a punch and pushing out in all 4 directions ?. My question is with regards to the back muscles. Am i pushing out through my back as well or am i stiffening the back muscles or are the back muscles stiffened as a result of the abdominal pushing out in each direction. Sorry i cant figure this out.

    I’ve looked through everything on this site and learned a lot. I’m in PT right now and a lot of what you have said makes sense and I am going to talk to my therapist the next time I see him about some of this. I tend to ask lots of questions so I’ll add this 😀

    But my main question is, in one of your articles you said you would address in upcoming articles the alternatives to static sitting but I could not find anything talking about how to sit correctly, just how we are doing it wrong and why. Did I overlook it? I do a lot of computer work but also crochet in my free time so am looking at how I can still do these things (taking lots of breaks) more ergonomically while doing them not just taking a break and changing positions often. Thanks

      Glad you have found the site useful. I’m afraid I just haven’t had time to write the article yet.

  • Hi, do you have a practice? Do you do skype sessions?

    Thanks!

      I’m afraid not, my work keeps me so busy that I am not able to dedicate as much time to this site as I would like.
