It is important to understand that the spine is the foundation of health. The body is designed to perfectly balance the head, ribs and pelvis in front and side views. If the posture deviates from the normal healthy position, the spine also deviates. Unfortunately, abnormal postures are associated with the development and progression of many spinal diseases and injuries, including increased muscle activity and disc damage, scoliosis, work lifting injuries, sports injuries, back pain, neck pain, headache, carpal tunnel symptoms, shoulder injuries, ankle injuries, and many other conditions. It is for this health consequence that you should strive to improve your spine and posture to normal.
