Welcome to the Cambridge Physiotherapy & Rehab Center

Your head is heavy! Typically, an adult human head weighs between 10 and 12 pounds, as the head tilts or angles forward the weight is affecting the neck directly. According to Dr. Hansraj the average person is holding his or her head forward to look at a phone or tablet for 2 to 4 hours a day.

If you have recently started a different workout routine that is causing you to be sore not just the day after but days after a workout, we can explain why. The classic Delayed-Onset Muscle Soreness, or DOMS, is an exercise-related muscle pain that sets in 6 to 8 hours after excessive or new, unaccustomed exercise, and peaks around the 48-hour mark. It is not surprising to find people complaining of aching muscles a day or two after exerting themselves in the gym, or after a dramatic increase in the duration and/or intensity of their exercise.

You can probably remember some time in your life hearing the words “sit up straight!” and “no slouching!”. Why should we really listen do that advice though, what’s wrong with slouching?

Here at Cambridge Physiotherapy & Rehab Center our clients know how important good posture really is. Good posturing means that we use the most efficient amount of muscle energy to keep our joints aligned against the downward pull of gravity we experience daily. Yes, it may be easier to slouch back in our chair, but good posture means efficient energy use which will save your body at the end of the day.
