How can an osteo or physio help my posture?

As we navigate the demands of modern life, the impact of poor posture on our overall health cannot be overstated. For both busy high-school students hunched over textbooks and dedicated desk workers glued to computer screens, maintaining optimal posture is not usually at the front of our mind. However, the long-term consequences of prolonged inadequate posture can be significant; from persistent back pain to reduced productivity.
