Postural Correction presents 30 of the most commonly occurring postural conditions in a comprehensive format, providing hands-on therapists and body workers the knowledge and resources to help clients address malalignments. Focusing on treatment rather than assessment, it takes a direct approach and applies specific techniques to improve posture from an anatomical rather than aesthetic perspective. Techniques vary for each posture correction, including deep tissue massage, simple passive stretches, soft tissue release, common trigger points and gentle limb traction. Postural Correction, a valuable adjunct to any joint-manipulative technique, will help professionals do both by correcting malalignments at a specific joint and with a more holistic approach.
