The Posture Health Connection

There is an epidemic in our society that is causing sickness and disease. The research demonstrates that 90% of the population presents with postural distortions that will negatively affect their health. If postural degeneration of the spine doesn’t get corrected, it inevitably gets worse with time. We don’t want to see happen to you, what happens to most people. Once the postural distortions get worse, patients experience pain and symptoms, diminishing their overall quality of life. Because when it comes to your health you can’t afford to let it get worse, isn’t health the greatest asset that you have?

What is Health?

The World Health Organization describes health as a state of complete physical, mental and social function, and not merely the absence of sickness and disease. Our health, therefore, is not just how we look or how we feel, it is how well the body is functioning. If health is 100% function of the body, our goals to improve health should thus be to optimize the function of the body. That is the purpose of Posturology, to remove postural distortions of the spinal column that are preventing your body from functioning at its maximal potential. Proper spinal alignment produces better body function.
