At 24 Hour Positioning we understand the significance of postural management.

We know through the literature that proper positioning and alignment is essential for our clients and results in better health outcomes and an increase in overall wellbeing. Correct postural support through the 24 hour continuum has shown to:

  • Decrease or “normalise” abnormal neurological influences on the body
  • Maintain proper skeletal alignment
  • Manage pressure distribution
  • Improve autonomic nervous system functions such as breathing, swallowing, digestion and cardiac function
  • Facilitate limb movement, improve movement patterns and increase functional use and participation
  • Reduce pain and fatigue

At 24 Hour Positioning we know that postural management is crucial to help prevent and manage complications such as breathing and digestive difficulties, contractures and ongoing structural changes of the spine and pelvis.
