Posture is, for those in the know, a window to your spine and nervous system. Dr Roger Sperry, who won a Nobel prize in 1981 for brain research is quoted as saying; “Better than 90% of the energy output of the brain is used in relating to the physical body in its gravitational field. The more mechanically distorted a person is, the less energy available for for thinking, metabolism and healing”. “90% of the stimulation and nutrition to the brain is generated by the movement of the spine”.
With that in mind we have sourced one of the most advanced posture assessment applications that is available today. PostureScreen is an app that has been used in many scientific research trials. It has been shown to have incredible accuracy in measuring your posture and specifically, changes in posture as you progress through various phases of care with us. At Warrington Optimum Wellness we use the PostureScreen app to assess and document your posture externally and to provide you with bespoke methods to change and improve your posture.
At Warrington Optimum Wellness we pride ourselves in being at the forefront of cutting edge technology that provides a benefit to our patients. The practice has had x-ray facilities since it first opened in 1988 and has helped diagnose many previously unknown conditions for the thousands of patients seen during this time.
Over five years ago we upgraded to digital x-rays. This has led us to be able to analyse the digital x-rays with x-ray analysis software. The advanced software we use is called PostureRay. This software has allowed patients to be able to see their X-rays analysed in great detail and helps to provide much more individualised programmes of care. Based upon X-ray findings, we are able to recommend whether a postural correction route is advisable.
