Patient resources: Posture and Preventing Injury

Posture is any position that you hold your body against gravity while standing, sitting or lying down. Good posture means the body will be able to maintain correct alignment and minimise stress or strain on joints, ligaments and muscles. Maintaining good posture is vital in helping to prevent injury. In this section, we have collated a selection of videos and general hints and tips as useful patient resources.
