How can Excellence Physiotherapy in London help treat back issues and bad posture conditions in teens?
In order to do so, different treatments will be put in place, such as physical exercises in order to tone the muscles, stretching but also proprioception exercises, which is characterised by the perception and awareness of the positions and movements of the body.
What are the symptoms and causes of posture issues in young people?
Diverse reasons can cause bad posture conditions in children, a lot of them being related to either school life (holding heavy weights daily such as school bags, seating in class all day long) or physical and psychological changes teens go through (puberty and growing up, flat feet). Weight can also be a part of what causes posture issues (overweight, obesity) alongside lack of physical activity.
But other reasons like the use of technology (smartphones, video games) or even the lack of confidence young people generally feel throughout their teen years can result in an arched physical posture, characterised by the head down with shoulders and back rolling in.
A teenager with bad posture will most of the time be defined by:
- Rounded shoulders and back
- Bent knee
- Head leaning forward or backward
A constant bad posture can result in a loss of muscle tone and excess weight, which could as well potentially lead to back pain, body aches and headaches.
