Poor posture can, quite literally, be a huge pain in the neck... or the lower back - it's one of the most common health problems in the western world. There are many causes, ranging from an increase in desk-based work and long periods of driving, to an imbalance in exercise training in the gym.
No-one wants to look hunched over if they can help it. At Next Step, we were giving out so many exercise plans for the treatment of poor posture, causing back and neck pain, that we came up with the idea of creating a six-week postural exercise course. Patients were soon getting used to the idea of having some welcome help and guidance with a series of targeted exercises.
The course consists of an initial postural assessment followed by weekly sessions that chart your progress, as well as setting some simple 'homework' exercises - in week six, there's a final assessment to measure your improvement.
This comprehensive course costs just £60, which includes two pieces of equipment to use at home that are yours to keep. If you ever wish to repeat the course, it's only £50 without the equipment.
If you're worried about your posture or think that your back and neck pain is related to this extremely common condition, why not sign up for the next course?
