Physiotherapy plays a vital role in helping patients improve their posture, mobility, and overall well-being. By incorporating simple exercises and stretches into daily routines, patients can experience significant benefits in flexibility, strength, and pain reduction. In this comprehensive guide, we will discuss ten physiotherapy techniques that chiropractors and other healthcare professionals can recommend to their patients for improved posture and mobility at home.
Seated exercises are perfect for individuals who spend long hours at a desk or have limited mobility. These exercises can be easily performed while sitting in an upright chair, making them convenient and accessible for most patients.
Seated chin tucks are an excellent exercise for combating forward head posture, which often occurs due to prolonged sitting or computer use. This exercise strengthens the deep neck flexor muscles that help maintain proper head alignment.
Scapular retractions are essential for strengthening the muscles that support the shoulder blades and reducing slumped forward posture.
Standing exercises can be performed anywhere – in the office, at home, or even while waiting in line. These exercises focus on strengthening the upper back and opening up the chest to promote proper posture.
This simple exercise helps strengthen the upper back muscles and improve posture.
The chest opener is a gentle stretch that opens up the chest and shoulders, counteracting the effects of prolonged sitting or hunching over a desk.
Whole body posture exercises focus on decompressing the spine and promoting overall spinal health.
This exercise helps to decompress the spine and alleviate tension from prolonged sitting.
The cat and cow exercise is a gentle spine mobility movement that can help energize the lower back muscles.

The doorway stretch is a simple exercise that can help to loosen tight chest and shoulder muscles caused by prolonged sitting.

Lower back and core posture exercises help to strengthen the muscles that support the spine, reducing the risk of injury and alleviating pain.
