The spine should have 3 distinct but balanced curves. These provide shock absorbing ability and reduce tension on the brain and spinal cord.
What is the ideal spine?
For most people the cause of their problem started long before they were aware of any symptoms. In fact, there is often a lot more damage to the spine than people realise. For this reason, our treatment is focused not only on relieving the pain and symptoms but reversing some of the underlying damage.
Correct posture is at the core of our method of treatment. We use state of the art computerised posture analysis technology to accurately and completely assess a patient’s posture.
The curves in your spine act as levers, shock absorbers, and resistance to gravity; they also protect and reduce forces acting on the spinal cord and nerve tissues. But, gravity, age, poor posture, improper physical activity, injury, and disease can all play a role in the misalignment of your spinal curves and, as a result, your entire body.

Two indicators of good posture are:
The pelvis is level and the spine is straight. This means your hips, shoulders and head should be level.
