What is Postureology?

Posturology is nothing short of life changing that dates back to the XIXth century.  It is a technique that changes the way your brain communicates with your muscles = improved posture,  increased strength and lower pain. 

Our current health system was built to treat symptoms, instead of addressing the true cause of the symptoms.

The basic premise of Posturology is that the body receives sensory information from the environment primarily via the foot, eye, bite and skin. If there is a defect in one or more of these systems, the body adapts to the faulty signals it’s receiving, and thereby becomes pathologically imbalanced.

The aim of Posturology is to correct errors at these receptor sites, returning the body to proper equilibrium.

Symptoms of Poor Posture

  • Lower back pain
  • Knee pain
  • Hip pain
  • Shoulder pain
  • Degenerative joint disease
  • Muscle tension
  • Bursitis
  • Piriformis syndrome
  • Calf pain
  • Tendinitis
  • Headaches

Benefits of Posture Re-Calibration

  • Identify Imbalances in the Sagittal, Frontal and Transverse plane
  • Identify the cause of your pain and understand the links between your posture and your symptoms
  • Reduce pain and posture related issues
  • Prevent likelihood of future injuries and pain from occurring
  • Increase range of movement and focus
  • Locate exact areas of weakness
  • Improve proprioception to the brain
  • Change faulty motor patterns and retrain your body to function optimally

  • 5 star review  I play professional hockey in Europe and I chose Body by Choice because of the elite level training programs they offer to athletes. I worked primarily with Nick and his colleague Kolby who are both very knowledgeable. Nick set up a personal program for me including diet, supplementation and a strength and conditioning routine that helped me reach my goals. In only 10 weeks I dropped 4% total body fat and put on 13 pounds of lean muscle. If you are serious about your sport and live in the Grand Rapids area you need to give them a call. I highly recommend Body by Choice.

  • 5 star review  I have recently joined Body By Choice and could not be happier. The owner Nick and my trainer Kolby have put together a personalized plan to get me back in shape and help relieve some of my chronic pain. Kolby pushes me every workout and I trust in his process. Also meeting with the nutritionist has completely changed my eating habits. The education about nutrition is priceless. I have renewed hope that I will meet and exceed my fitness goals.
