Welcome to Posture Fitness
are on your way
to understanding your body
in a whole new light.
The research keeps rolling in. Establishing a
neuromuscular connection and restoring motor control is critical in working with any joint instablility. Spinal vertebra have
articulating joints just like the bigger joints of the knee, shoulder and elbow.
Nashville Neuromuscular Center's Posture Fitness program is laser-focused on the myofascial
structures that are responsible for body alignment. Posture Fitness is based on fundamental anatomical, physiological
and bio-mechanical principles. It consists of a thorough analysis of an individual’s posture and weight distribution
using functional movement tests and observation of gait. This assessment aids in detecting muscle and fascial imbalances,
postural misalignments, biomechanical dysfunctions, and compensatory movement patterns.
Then a specific program for your unique body needs is created and Voila! The
work is begun and you're on your way. Remaining compliant with these simple movements will correct and support your best posture,
reduce your pain, and allow a more complete range of movement. That said, however, no matter how many exercises
you do, until you change your daily biomechanical and posture habits your body will default to the same old
patterns. The position that you assume the most is the shape your body will take on.
Posture Fitness targets specific muscles and fascial planes
(anatomy trains), thereby retraining them and restoring proper length, tension, and movement patterns. And with the practice
and repetitions of the cient, these new movement patterns soon are engrained as motor engrams (new habits) which will serve
the client well.
Posture Fitness routines are not the same as Fitness
Training sessions. These are corrective movements designed to work in conjunction with your regular conditioning activities.
Once your body is in a more efficient position, your cardio and strength training workouts will be much more effective and
enjoyable without pain and injury.

Does your daily life, work, or play leave you fatiqued, stiff or
Do you workout with a personal trainer
regularly, but continue to have the same old nagging aches and pains?
Do you receive regular massages,which feel
great while you're on the table, but a few days later the same area of pain returns?
A dedicated workout regimen is an investment of time, energy and money. So, of course, you
want to achieve the best possible results. What you may not realize is that an imbalance of the length:tension relationship
of the muscles and connective tissues (myofascia) is a common problem which can prevent you from attaining
the full advantage of your workout sessions, or worse, set you up for pain and injury.
Fortunately, there are knowledgeable Posture Alignment Therapists at the Nashville
Neuromuscular Center where you can find help in balancing your framework to prepare you for a pain free lifestyle or
an effective fitness program and not keep you dependent on a massage therapist, chiropractor, or physical therapist to
keep you feeling good week after week.
Before you endure another painful hike or run; before you put another
ice pack on that hip after cycling; before you take your workout to the weight room, yoga center, pilates room,
be sure your posture and joints are properly balanced for efficient stabilization and mobility.
Scheduling sessions for a comprehensive evaluation and Posture Fitness ® prehabilitation corrective program
will prepare you to pursue your own fitness goals safely, with a reduced risk of injury and pain and help you achieve the
ultimate results you desire.
