Posture Therapy & Functional Motion
What is Posture Therapy?
Posture therapy involves simple corrective exercises designed to relieve pain by improving your posture and restoring correct alignment from head to toe. Too often we look at the symptom/area of pain rather than finding the root cause. At Pain Free Clinic of Denver we do a postural evaluation to help determine root issues. Once we find the true cause of your pain we begin a corrective exercise program to help restore proper alignment and functional movement thereby reducing and healing your pain.
By changing your position and improving your posture, you can eliminate:

Why Posture Therapy Works
The reason Postural Therapy works so well is because it retrains your body and your muscles to do what they were designed to do from day one. Pete Egoscue tells us “your bones do what your muscles tell them to do.”
Therefore, if we replace the dysfunction with new, correct muscle memory, your posture will improve and your pain will disappear... just like it has for countless others!
Our one-on-one clients experience the most improvement in a shorter period of time. These clients go through the postural evaluation and follow up with anywhere from 8 to 16+ visits to begin the process of realigning & strengthening the body. Stasia uses techniques from her certifications including The Egoscue Method, Foundation Training, MUTU System™ (core & pelvic floor) and her current training to become a Postpartum Exercise Specialist with Sarah Duvall, PT.
Group classes are great for someone who doesn’t have a lot of pain, but wants to go through corrective exercise sessions with a group. The exercises are not individualized, but more of a general approach. The classes are a lot of fun and we have a lot of repeat clients quarter to quarter.
