This package includes the following:
  • Postural Correction ebook
  • Online study guide
  • Online continuing education exam
Postural Correction presents 30 of the most commonly occurring postural conditions in a comprehensive format, providing hands-on therapists and body workers the knowledge and resources to help clients address their malalignments. Focusing on treatment rather than assessment, you will learn understand how to apply specific techniques to improve posture from an anatomical perspective.

Structured by anatomical regions of the body, Postural Correction tackles postural concerns commonly affecting the spine; pelvis; upper limbs, including the shoulder and elbow; and lower limbs, including the hip, knee, ankle, and foot. Using clear, simple explanations that avoid biomechanical jargon, the text provides an overview of each malalignment, including which muscles to lengthen and loosen, which to shorten and strengthen, whether the suggested technique is carried out by you or your client, and rationale for the corrective technique.

The posture corrections involve a variety of techniques, including deep tissue massage, simple passive stretches, soft tissue release, common trigger points, and gentle limb traction. Full-color anatomical illustrations and photographs present a clear visual of what will help bring about postural change. You'll also learn how weak or poorly functioning muscles may contribute to postural problems and what muscles need to be strengthened with recommendations on techniques.

Recognizing that the work clients can carry out independently is a crucial component of long-term postural correction, you’ll be prepared to inform clients on the best approach to continue their therapy between or at the conclusion of their sessions. Much attention is paid to lifestyle, activities, and habitual use or resting of body parts that may have led to the initial pain and malalignment.

The included study guide provides chapter activities to help solidify understanding of key concepts. Once you complete the course and pass the exam, you can print a certificate for continuing education credits.

Jane Johnson, MSc, is a chartered physiotherapist and sport massage therapist specializing in occupational health. In this role, she spends much time assessing the posture of clients and examining whether work, sport, or recreational postures may be contributing to their symptoms.

Johnson has taught continuing professional development (CPD) workshops for many organizations both in the United Kingdom and abroad. This experience has brought her into contact with thousands of therapists of all disciplines and informed her own practice. She is passionate about supporting and inspiring newly qualified or less confident therapists so they feel more self-assured in their work.

Johnson is a member of the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy and is registered with the Health Professions Council. A member of the Medico Legal Association of Chartered Physiotherapists, she provides expert witness reports on cases involving soft tissue therapies.

In her spare time, Johnson enjoys taking her dog for long walks, sketching, and visiting museums. She resides in northeast England.
