Alternative and Augmentative Communication (AAC): What is it?
Learning never Stops!

What is good posture?

Good posture is the position in which you hold your body upright against gravity while standing, sitting or lying down.

Good posture involves training your body to stand, walk, sit and lie in positions where the least strain is placed on supporting muscles and ligaments during movement or weight-bearing activities.

Why is proper posture important?

    Children Playing
  • Keeps bones and joints in the correct alignment so that muscles are being used properly
  • Helps to decrease abnormal wearing of joint surfaces
  • Decreases the stress on the ligaments by holding the joints of the spine together
  • Prevents the spine from becoming fixed in abnormal positions

Children Playing What contributes to bad posture?

  • Weak muscles
  • Tight muscles; or decreased flexibility of the muscles (typically we find this in children with cerebral palsy or with various neuro motor disorders)
  • Poor sitting and standing habits
  • Poor work environment – height of desk and chair
  • Obesity

How Occupational Therapy can help

  • Therapists can assess what is the underlying cause of poor postural patterns
  • Strengthen deep core postural muscles
  • Work on balance
  • Work on coordination, especially of both sides of the body and brain
  • Modify the environment
