Posture Care Program
Posture care is an innovative approach that improves physical and mental well-being in people with disabilities through symmetrical body alignment. Posture care is facilitated by Physical Therapists and is designed to integrate into other interventions, including rehabilitation services.
Based on a UK model, posture care is gaining popularity in the United States. The technique uses a gentle, non-invasive approach to improve the distribution of force on joints, ligaments, and muscles.
Children and adults with disabilities are at a heightened risk of developing body asymmetry or other distortions that can affect a person's comfort level as well as nearly every aspect of their functioning and behavior. This technique is proven to increase comfort and reduce pain, among other benefits.
