Poor posture can be a cause or a symptom of many injuries and medical conditions. Posture contributes to nearly all musculoskeletal problems and is so often the root cause of painful conditions. Posture dysfunction often contributes to secondary painful conditions such as adhesive capsulitis (frozen shoulder) due to malalignment of the shoulders and the hyperkyphotic posture (a common posture in modern society). Remedial soft tissue therapy can help correct poor posture and ultimately prevent the occurrence of many secondary painful conditions.
