Posture and Health
Posture and normal physiology are interrelated.
- Posture affects and moderates every physiological function from breathing to hormonal production
- Abnormal posture is evident in patients with chronic and stress related illnesses.
- Homeostasis and nervous system function are ultimately connected with posture
- Despite the considerable evidence that posture affects physiology and function, the significant influence of posture on health is not addressed by most physicians.
