What is postural restoration?
The Postural Restoration Institute was established in the year 2000, and it has grown rapidly since. There are now just over 200 Postural Restoration Certified professionals, over 50 Postural Restoration Trained professionals, and over 80 Postural Restoration Centers across the country. Postural restoration focuses on several key aspects that link postural dysfunctions to the interference and damage on polyarticular chains, including:
PRI neuromuscular orthotic principles
Recognition of altered systemic muscles
Polyarticular muscular chains
Regulatory functional lateralization
Unilateral compensatory patterned function
Multi-faceted approach of non-linear treatment
Imbalanced inhibition vs. balanced strengthening
What to expect?
At your initial appointment, you will undergo a thorough evaluation with one of our highly-trained and Postural Restoration Certified physical therapists. Your evaluation will assess your postural dysfunctions, asymmetrical adaptations, interferences on your polyarticular chain, and accompanying symptoms. After your evaluation, one of our Cambridge and Marblehead physical therapists will create an individualized treatment plan based on your specific needs, in order to help you achieve postural restoration.
