Dr Brad Ivanchuk, a Burlington chiropractor has recently discussed the importance of healthy posture in infants, children and pregnant mom’s.
Good posture however, is a necessity for everyone.
It is very important for you to understand that the posture system is just as important as every other physiologic system in your body, if not more so.
Your cardio-respiratory system, your digestive system, your musculo-skeletal system and even your reproductive system for example will not work properly if you do not have a healthy posture system.
The primary purpose of your posture system is to keep you upright against the ever-present force of gravity and to stabilize your core so that your arms and legs are free to perform coordinated movements.
The posture system integrates various forms of sensory feedback from your brain to your body so that your body can adapt and balance and stay upright in response to an ever changing environment on a moment by moment basis.
And you don’t even have to think about it!
The key to having a healthy and functional posture system is 100% dependent on spinal and skeletal alignment.
So, over the next few weeks I am going to teach you what the health risks are if you have alignment issues or postural distortions in each of the 4 posture quadrants that make up the human body.
