Ask a Posture Pro|The Key to Success with Posture Alignment Therapy
If you are in chronic pain and looking for a natural solution WITHOUT medication, manipulation or surgery for the problem, then posture alignment therapy may right for you!
Postural therapy is based on the teachings of best selling author was Pete Egoscue, and taught at The Egoscue University
Chronic pain relief using Postural Therapy is founded on a simple, yet profound belief. A philosophy that given half a chance, the human body has the unbelievable ability to heal itself!
We believe that aside from rare genetic abnormalities and acute traumas, most chronic musculoskeletal pain can be resolved through the use of corrective exercise.
By working with a Posture Alignment Specialist (Egoscue University Certified), we EMPOWER YOU to take RESPONSIBILITY for your own health and recovery by restoring lost function.
When describing what Posture Alignment Therapy is, Pete writes the following in his first book The Egoscue Method of Health Through Motion:
"It's about responsibility. It's about you, and about the answer to a question I hear almost every day in my clinic: "How did I get in this condition?" It's been asked so often...that I ...don't remember the first time, but I do have a clear recollection of a woman from the Midwest, a lawyer, a wife, and a mother of two children, who was suffering from back spasms that prevented her from bending over and putting on her own shoes. 'I wasn't born this way, ...I haven't done anything stupid like go over Niagara Falls in a barrel. I'm just a normal person doing normal things and it doesn't make any sense.' Three hours later I watched her lace her Reeboks. She looked up and there were tears in her eyes. 'Thank you,'she said. Thank yourself, I replied. You made the pain go away. You took responsibility for your own health - not me." p xvii
Use it or Lose it!
So what's the Key to Success with Posture Alignment Therapy?
The woman Pete wrote about represents the majority of the clients we see here at Pain Free Posture MN. She had to take action! Something had to change because what she was doing wasn't working. She realized that she wasn't born this way.
Finding herself in chronic pain, this woman recognized it as a Signal and decided to jump off of the chronic-pain-merry-go-round.
She acknowledged that her body mechanics had deteriorated and that her pain was the result of her posture (her condition). Admittedly, she got her self into that condition AND the best part? She took responsibility, took action and got her self out of it.
That's what Postural Therapy is all about! Empowering you to take responsibility and restore your lost motor functions through the power of corrective exercise.
