Are you tired of spending time, money and energy chasing symptoms?
If you are ready to heal the underlying causes of your pain, you are in the right place.
“Chronic pain is the big elephant in the room of health care. It is the top reason to seek care, the #1 cause of disability and addiction, and the primary driver of healthcare utilization, costing more than cancer, heart disease, and diabetes.“
Dr. James Fricton, Professor Emeritus, University of Minnesota. Senior Researcher, HealthPartners Institute, Pain Specialist, Minnesota Head and Neck Pain Clinic, President, International Myopain Society Dr. Karen Lawson MD, Director, Health Coaching University of Minnesota
Foot pain is very common. People often come to Postural Healing for back or joint pain and bring up foot pain as a side note.
Many people ignore and mistreat their feet despite how important they are in day-to-day life. Your feet and ankles are the base of your support and are the foundation on which you stand. Your feet carry the weight and take the impact of all that you do.
Feet are complex with many moving pieces – 26 bones, 33 joints and more than 100 muscles, ligaments and tendons.
Your feet, like the rest of your body, are strong when they are in alignment. Even though feet have a lot of moving parts, creating an environment for their health is simple.
It is possible to relieve pain due to conditions like bunions, hammer toes, bone spurs, Morton’s Neuroma, plantar fasciosis or plantar fasciitis. More importantly, your feet and ankles play an essential role in healthy, pain-free posture and movement.
Your loyal, hard working feet are asking you take action to:
Prevent and relieve your foot pain
Discover what is causing your foot issues
Receive guidance on footwear and other resources to eliminate your foot pain
Receive posture exercises to help prevent and reduce foot pain
Whether you have cartilage damage, a Baker’s cyst, patellofemoral pain, osteoarthritis, bursitis, patellar tendonitis, torn meniscus or other knee pain, Postural Healing can help.
Knee pain can be eliminated by creating alignment between the hip, knee and ankle joints. Realigning your posture reduces grinding and friction that can create inflammation, cartilage degeneration and pain.
When aligned, you create an environment where your knee is naturally able to heal.
The pelvis connects your upper and lower body, playing a vital role in supporting healthy posture and movement. The position of the pelvis affects everything above and below that point. This is especially true with the hip joints.
Hip flexor pain, gluteal pain, leg pain, sciatica and hip joint pain including osteoarthritis can all result from pelvic and hip misalignment.
Postural Healing can bring the pelvis back into a neutral position allowing the hips to function as designed. This alignment provides relief to muscles that were over-compensating and prevents further damage to the joints while allowing the space for healing to take place
It is now common to see people’s heads jut forward due to lots of time spent sitting at computers. This poor posture brings about many issues like cervical/neck pain, headaches, migraines, TMJ, balance and vertigo issues.
Postural Healing focuses on restoring your posture which allows your head to sit level and stacked over your shoulders, relieving tension, strain and pain
When your shoulders round forward, your shoulder joint range of motion is reduced, making you more prone to injury.
Rounded shoulders can result in rotator cuff injuries, shoulder impingement and frozen shoulder.
Postural Healing helps you relieve shoulder pain by restoring your proper posture. As your shoulders fall back in line with your ankles, knees, hips and ears, pain is relieved and range of motion is restored.
When your posture is misaligned, nerves can be impinged or irritated, causing numbness, tingling and pain.
Some common nerve pain issues include sciatica, Morton’s Neuroma and carpal tunnel.
Postural Healing can help by rebalancing muscles and aligning joints so that the nerves are no longer being impinged. This alignment gives the nerves space to calm down and heal which over time relieves pain and discomfort.
