What is global postural rehabilitation
Global Postural Rehabilitation is a method in physiotherapy that treats the body as a coherent whole. This specialized global approach aims at treating postural problems, neck, back and headache pain and other repetitive and persistant discomforts including certain respiratory issues. RPG as it is known, is also a method of choice to treat scoliosis.
The goal of the treatment, adapted to your situation, is to diminish compression felt in joints, ease related tensions and re-balance musculature all the while moving towards the cause of the symptoms and gradually correcting muscular discomforts and stiffness. To accomplish these goals the physiotherapist evaluates various daily postures and observes the reaction of the body in these different positions.
