Quote I am pondering: “Posture is the window to the spine and nervous system”
If you are ever curious as to the health of a person’s spine and spinal cord, all you need to do is look at a person with a few things in mind to get a good idea. When looking at the body from the front we should see symmetry in the following areas: the heights of both ears, shoulders, hips, knees and feet. Looking at the body from the side, we should be able to draw a straight line from the hole in the ear, to the middle of shoulder, middle of the hip, middle of the knee, and ankle bone. Remember, where the spine goes, so does the spinal cord. If the posture is poor, the spinal cord is under stress. If the spinal cord is under stress, the signals moving between the brain and body are jumbled. Jumbled signals lead to lowered levels of health and sometimes pain.
Have a kick ass week everyone!
