As the Twig Grows So Bends The Tree!
Posture is considered by health professional as the window to the spine. You may think that posture is just the way that you look when you sit or stand but research clearly shows that posture effects every physiological function, from breathing to hormonal production.
Roger Sperry, Ph.D. (Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine 1981) discovered that 90% of the
brain’s activity is used to balance your body within the gravitational field of earth. If your body
is mechanically distorted, it will affect the other 10% of the brain’s activity, which controls all
the other body functions such as breathing, digestion and cognition.
Posture deviations start at an early age, so it’s vital that parents take care of their children’s growing spine by helping them make the right choices throughout the day. Too much time using tech devices or slouching can have long term consequences.
