What is Postural Restoration®?

At Go Sports Therapy, located inside Millennium Family Fitness Center in Joplin, MO, we are proud to offer a revolutionary approach to physical medicine known as Postural Restoration®. Developed by the Postural Restoration Institute (PRI), this method focuses on identifying and addressing the root causes of pain and dysfunction in the body. Unlike traditional treatments that often focus on symptomatic relief, Postural Restoration® seeks to restore balance and proper biomechanics, leading to long-term health and well-being.

Understanding the PRI Approach

The PRI approach is unique in that it considers all mechanical influences on the body that restrict movement and contribute to improper joint and muscle positions. Our PRI-credentialed providers at Go Sports Therapy are trained to examine and assess these factors comprehensively. By looking beyond the immediate symptoms and addressing underlying biomechanics, we can offer more effective and lasting solutions to our clients. This holistic approach ensures that all aspects of a person’s posture and movement are taken into account for optimal results.

Techniques for Restoration and Alignment

At Go Sports Therapy, our PRI-credentialed professionals utilize both non-manual and manual techniques to restore proper alignment of the body. This includes exercises and activities designed to correct muscle imbalances and improve joint positioning. We also place a significant emphasis on proper respiratory dynamics, as breathing patterns can significantly affect posture and overall biomechanics. By integrating these techniques, we help our clients achieve better alignment and movement efficiency, reducing pain and improving function.

Comprehensive Assessments and Personalized Care

Our team at Go Sports Therapy believes that every individual’s needs are unique, which is why we provide comprehensive assessments to develop personalized treatment plans. We take the time to thoroughly evaluate each client’s posture, movement patterns, and overall biomechanics. This detailed assessment allows us to identify specific areas of concern and tailor our approach to meet each client’s unique needs. Whether you’re dealing with chronic pain, recovering from an injury, or looking to improve your overall function, we’re here to help.

Long-term Management and Prevention

Postural Restoration® is not just about treating symptoms; it’s about long-term management and prevention. At Go Sports Therapy, we emphasize the importance of integrating these principles into everyday life for lasting results. Our clients receive education and guidance on how to maintain proper alignment and movement patterns outside of therapy sessions. This proactive approach helps prevent future issues and promotes a lifetime of optimal health and function.
