Is postural training right for me?

Dr. Trakhtenberg and his team assess your posture and complete a physical examination to find out if you’re a good candidate for postural training. They also review your symptoms and medical history. Your therapist might recommend X-rays, MRIs, or other imaging procedures to develop a personalized treatment plan that meets your unique needs.

What are my postural training treatment options?

To correct spinal misalignment and poor posture, Feel Good Physical Therapy experts identify the source of your pain. They might recommend:

Postural exercises

To restore a desirable posture, your therapist shows you how to complete gentle exercises and stretches specifically designed to perfect posture. They show you which exercises to complete at home between visits, and let you know how often to complete them. The result is a stronger back, an upright posture, and a lower risk of injuries.

Manual manipulation techniques

The Feel Good Physical Therapy team offers a wide array of manual manipulation techniques that help realign your spine, optimize posture, reduce pressure associated with pinched nerves, and relieve muscle tension and chronic pain. They might recommend massage therapy, osteopathic manipulation, spinal manipulation, or combinations of these holistic treatments.
