STAND UP STRAIGHT! The cry we heard all our lives.
Posture is so much more that Standing Up Straight
Your posture is involved in everything you do.
It affects the amount of energy you have.
It affects your lung capacity.
It affects your balance, flexibility, and ability to exercise.
And, it could determine whether you live your life in pain, or not.
Put simply, your muscles have the job of stabilizing you, and moving you.
Every 90 days your muscle cells regenerate greater into stabilizing muscles or greater moving muscles. If your posture is off, or you live a sedentary lifestyle, your body will generate more stabilizing cells to compensate, leaving you will less “movement” and less function.
Essentially, your lifestyle determines what type of muscle cells the body will develop:
More stability muscle cells at the price of flexibility or more movement cells that support activity and flexibility.
A big factor in Aging = More stability at the cost of flexibility. I hear all the time “I can’t move like I used to”.
The aches, pains and stiffness of aging can be partially attributed to this process. This is why mobility is so important throughout your life.
Chiropractic care is imperative in this process of keeping you moving and flexible, and therefore keeping you active and youthful.
