Why bother about your POSTURE?

In the last video we looked at what is good or ideal posture. In this video we are addressing the WHY.

When we talk about the curves in our posture we are talking about our side curves. These curve have a huge job of providing leverage for movement and providing shock absorption so our spinal cord and spinal nerves stay protected.

Try jumping on a bed with no springs! The springs in a bed absorb shock.

Ideal curves help to reduce the load on the spinal joints and soft tissues structures, such as muscles and ligaments.

Our nerves run our body, so good spinal alignment reduces the stress on our nervous system – maintaining healthy posture is vital for our health. Stressed spinal joints and fatigued muscles can cause pain and discomfort and lead to a reduced quality of life.
