Chronic pain refers to the long term, persisting pain that just doesn't seem to go away on its own.

Who can honestly say they have "perfect posture"? The truth is, poor postural habits is something we are all guilty of at times, however it becomes a problem when our bodies learn an incorrect postural pattern and adapt it as its functional normal. We aim to guide you by identifying weak muscles and providing you with strategies to help address your posture long term.
