How many people do you know that can remember when their mother scolded them about slouching? Did your mother tell you to stand up or sit up straighter?
Well - she was right!
Did you know that your brain controls your entire body? How does your brain talk to our body? That's right, NERVES. These nerves travel from your brain, down your spinal cord and out to every cell in your body. The spine has little holes in the side of the bone that allows the nerves to get out. If you have had a TRAUMA or have POOR POSTURE, these holes are altered in shape and interfere with how the nerves are able to work. This may affect the way your body parts work or DON'Twork!
When you look in a mirror do you see one ear higher than the other? One shoulder higher than the other? One hip higher than the other? - Stop - Have some one look at you from the side. Is your ear and shoulder straight up and down from each other or is your ear forward of your shoulder? If you answer yes to any of the above questions you may already have spinal damage!
