Fixing Poor or Bad Posture in Malaysia

Fixing Poor or Bad Posture in Malaysia is easy if you know where to get the best treatment. Before seeking care, you need to thoroughly investigate treatment facilities and centers around you. Most treatment centers offer limited therapy options. The vast majority of which are not holistic. In other words, for your to recover, you will need every aspect of your posture assessed by a proficient clinical team.

Physiotherapy and Chiropractic are common avenues of therapy for most, but the vast majority of centers that offer physiotherapy or chiropractic in Malaysia lack a complete understanding of posture and biomechanical deficiencies that lead to a bad posture. Chiropractic Specialty Centers have specific protocols for assessments and treatment of those with poor postures. Our clinical teams go through the intensive training session.

Bad posture and muscle imbalances can be the cause of neck and shoulder problems or vice versa. Muscle imbalances could be due to repetitive movements, prolonged stressful postures, and effects of gravity. Muscle imbalances occur when some muscles become short and tight while some muscles become inhibited and weak. Upper Crossed Syndrome or Proximal Crossed Syndrome in the upper body is one of the examples for muscle imbalances. People with Proximal Crossed Syndrome usually present with forwarding head posture, rounded shoulders and inwards rotated arms. Winging of the scapulae may be found with this musculoskeletal postural disorder.

Forward head carriage and rounded shoulder progressively weaken deep neck flexors in the front of the neck and scapular stabilizing muscles in the upper back. Tightening of the anterior chest muscles, upper back muscles and posterior neck muscles occurs. Muscle imbalances often result in faulty movements such as a scapular shrug, scapular winging and head protraction. Poor neck and shoulder joint alignment can lead to rotator cuff impingement tendonitis, neck pain, and headache. Chronic hunching of the upper back can inhibit deep inhalation.

Prolonged computer or desk work and driving should be avoided. Standing and stretching for a few minutes every half an hour prevents sustained misalignment and relaxes tight muscles. Sitting on a gym ball improves erect posture and decreases the stress in the lower back.  

Stretching of the tight anterior chest muscles or pectoralis muscles alleviates the discomfort. Stand facing a wall corner in a “surrender position” with both arms and elbows at 90-degree angle. Rest both palms against the wall and lean into the wall until a gentle stretch is felt in the chest muscles. Hold the stretch for 30 to 60 seconds. Change the angle of the arm to 120 degrees and repeat the procedures above.
