Importance of Posture

It is important that you understand that your spine is the foundation of health. The body is designed to have the head, rib cage, and pelvis perfectly balanced upon one another in both the front and side views. If the posture is deviated from normal, then the spine is also deviated from the normal healthy position. 

Any measurable deviation from normal posture causes weakening of the spine as well as increased stress on the nervous system which can adversely affect overall health.

Unfortunately, abnormal posture has been associated with the development and progression of many spinal conditions and injuries including: increased muscle activity and disc injury, scoliosis, work lifting injuries, sports injuries, back pain, neck pain, headaches, carpal tunnel symptoms, shoulder and ankle injuries as well as many other conditions. 

Your posture evaluation demonstrates that you have postural abnormalities. In the future, structural deviations could cause you symptoms of pain as well as a myriad of other health problems. Consequently, it is advised that you complete a thorough treatment plan in postural corrective techniques.

It is for this health consequence you should strive to improve your spinal and postural alignment towards normal.
