Spinal and Posture Screenings
Spinal and posture screenings can help you by locating where your posture is incorrect. Common posture problems include head forward, rounded shoulders and sway-back. Our spinal screening can help diagnose abnormal spinal curves, like scoliosis. Once we have a detailed analysis of your posture and spine, we will recommend certain lifestyle changes and exercises to help correct your posture.
