YOUR GRANDMOTHER WAS RIGHT! Sit up and stop slouching!
Your head is on average 8 lbs, well my wife would say mine is quite a bit larger, regardless of what is said about yours your head sits on a bone that is usually no more than 2 ounces. “It’s like an orange on a toothpick.”
Really the ability for your nervous system to function properly is determined on the pressures put on the spine. DID YOU KNOW THAT THE WEIGHT OF AN AMERICAN DIME CAN DECREASE NERVE FUNCTION BY UP TO 70%?
Putting that in perspective we could say that if we removed 70% of the nerves to you eye you may not see as well.
Your posture has and also is a direct result of nervous system compromise. The part responsible for balance and posture are immediately affected when there is pressure being put on the nervous system. The interesting thing is that if you remove pressure normal function is restored to the nerve.
So here is the big punch… for every inch forward you either stick your chin out or lean forward you add about 20 POUNDS of additional pressure on the spine, brain stem and spinal cord! Wow that can add up fast…
So stand a little taller and walk a little higher (sounds like a song?), get checked by your local Upper Cervical Chiropractor AND LISTEN TO YOUR GRANDMOTHER!
