Postural Management: assisting rehabilitation or disability management

Severe disability and the associated postural problems that can arise from brain injury and damage to the central nervous system may lead to development of compensation strategies and postural changes. The body becomes unable to effectively control posture and movement.  A Postural Management assessment identifies risks and postural changes and makes recommendations to address these.

PM is a 24 hour approach involving the assessment and management of all positions that an individual uses i.e. lying in bed, sitting and standing, and is part of the rehabilitation process or disability management programme.
