3. Muscular Activation – Postural Correction and Biomechanics Training


In order to complement “The Unblock”, we must begin to correct posture and movement. Using a series of specific muscular activation techniques and functional movement patterns we are able to re-train movement to correct posture, which will prepare you for the next phase: “The Lift”. 

Sedentary lifestyle and increased sitting has seen the majority of the population suffer from postural dysfunction and improper activation of stabilizing muscles (Glute function in relation to Lumbopelvic dysfunction and pain). The Bridge will identify areas of weakness, restriction and immobility, and correct these issues by creating awareness of muscular activation, increased mobilization and an overall understanding and consciousness of human movement/function.

Clients will be prescribed home exercises and activities, which will aid their progression from a person not in tune with their own physical function, to a person that is conscious of their movement and ready to progress to the next phase; “The Lift”.

Take a look at the following videos to gain insight into some of the Muscular Activation, Biomechanics and Functional Postural Training techniques we use at Melbourne Muscular Therapies.
