At JE Care we can accurately, quickly & safely check Posture and screen for Scoliosis. Our service involves;
We provide an in depth postural analysis starting with the feet & ending at the head. In addition, the postural back scan involves a scan of the spine while also measuring the force of weight-bearing on the feet. Posture has a huge bearing on injury occurrence or predisposition to injury. Think of a building with poor foundations; this is the same with the human body. Poor posture has an effect on general health and has an influence on the function of our movement, respiratory, cardiovascular, digestive & musculoskeletal systems. In the case of arthritic posture or in osteoporotic patients it is especially relevant to have a reference point for your posture to measure, maintain & improve your wellbeing.
JE Care uses its postural scanning systems to scan the back, neck, pelvis, legs & feet to gauge improvement to treatment. By knowing your posture type you discover areas of your posture that need improvement.
A scoliotic spine usually takes the shape of a C or an S shaped spine curvature. Often there is also a rotational element involved with scoliosis, so someone may notice that one shoulder appears to be more forward and lower than the other. The rotational element becomes much more obvious when forward bending.
JE Care are able to safely screen for scoliosis and to(delete) monitor any changes until such a time as bone growth has ceased. We can provide bespoke exercise & treatment programs to help minimise the effects scoliosis has on the body.
