Posture is an outer expression of inner health
A great posture is not only attractive to look at but it is also a window which shows how the many components of your musculoskeletal system work together. Posture is a reflection of 4 important elements of the neuromusculoskeletal system: muscle balance, kinesthetic sense, neuromuscular coordination, mechanical efficiency.
The body has an infinite ability to heal itself
if proper positive stimuli are given. The body is organic. It is in a constant state of growth or rebirth. Muscles, bones, nerves, connective tissues, cartilage, and the like are all alive.
The spinal cord is the pathway by which the central nerve system communicates with the body. Without proper positioning of the spine through aligned postural joints, the communication system can be impacted, causing pain and other health issues.
Pain is a way the body communicates to get your attention
Treating the cause instead of chasing the symptom
The site of pain is rarely the cause of pain. Most chronic pain originates from habitual postures. The work environment, improper physical training, past injuries and surgeries can cause muscle imbalances. Emotional traumas and chronic stresses can also add to chronic pain. Treating the position of body, not just the condition,will help the condition to take care of itself; fixing the root cause.
