Posture and Health
An Aligned Spine = Abundant Health
A life of wellness and vitality is something we all hope for. But more often than not, reality sets in and we start to feel our bodies by way of aching joints, declining posture, stiff muscles, and decreased energy. It turns out that posture is indeed the window to our spine, and thus our health. More and more research is starting to support the damaging effects that poor posture can play in one’s health and livelihood.
As stated by the American Journal of Pain Management:
Posture and normal physiology are interrelated
Posture affects and moderates every physiological function from breathing to hormonal production
Abnormal posture is evident in patients with chronic and stress related illnesses
Homeostasis and nervous system function are ultimately connected with posture
Basically, as the body develops poor posture by way of incurring stress from any of the physical, chemical, or emotional/mental traumas that occur with daily life, subluxation patterns form over time and ultimately cause a rapid progression of spinal degeneration.
An aligned spine and optimal functioning nervous system equate to abundant health.
