Your posture is one of the most important elements of your health – and this is largely because your spine protects your spinal cord and nerves. When the spine is distorted out of it’s proper position and alignment then you start to create 2 major problems:
This can be seen quite clearly with research showing significant links between breathing (lung function), reflux and other digestive issues – and your posture.
Posture effects and moderates every physiological function from breathing to hormonal production. Spinal pain, headaches, mood, blood pressure, pulse, and lung capacity are among the functions most easily influenced by posture. Posture, normal physiology, and function are interrelated. Abnormal posture is evident in patients with chronic pain-related conditions including backache, headache, and stress-related illness.
Since the nervous system is responsible for EVERY function of the human body, including movement of our limbs and the function of our vital organs, we believe that checking and correcting spinal alignment problems that cause nerve interference should be a key part of your family’s health care/wellness regimen.
