Posture and MS

May 23, 2022 | Southmedia

The MS Trust has produced a useful guide to posture and MS

Poor posture is a common problem for people with multiple sclerosis.

The MS Trust website has some very useful web pages which explain what posture is all about, why good posture is so important and suggest some practical steps to improve your posture in everyday situations. They look at good and bad posture in standing, sitting and lying and examine the relationship of the postural muscles – the deep muscles in your stomach and back – with arm function and balance. The pages include helpful videos, tips and links to further information.

These pages are intended to complement information given to you by health professionals and act as a reminder of advice you may have been given. They are not intended to replace the thorough assessment of a health professional.  If you have specific concerns, seek the advice of a therapist.

Don’t forget, you can also speak to our physiotherapists here at the Centre or call us on 0118 901 6000 if you have any questions about your posture.
