The most commonly seen postural abnormalities include a forward head posture, rounded shoulders, an increased lower back curve, and flat feet. Postural problems can develop due to incorrect postures over a prolonged period of time, but can also be secondary to visual impairment, hearing loss, degenerative conditions, and central nervous system pathology. The issues mostly develop when the muscles become tight and weak and are unable to support the body correctly.
Most of the postural problems can be easily resolved by adhering to the exercise programme and constantly adopting the correct postures while performing everyday activities. However, long-term postural problems can take a while to correct.
