Posture is a critical factor in overcoming any case of repetitive strain injury. When the segments of the body are properly aligned in relation with one another, the body functions with the greatest level of ease possible. Flexibility and range of motion will be as good as possible, within the constraints of other existing factors in the body.
Factors that can influence and interfere with correct posture are:
• Bad habits for sitting and standing that are developed over a lifetime
• The after effects of surgery or other trauma
• The result of adhesions that interfere with the proper alignment of the body
• Emotions that change the way a person presents themselves to others, as in the case of a depressed person
The best and most stress-free standing posture is characterized by each segment of the body being stacked squarely upon the one beneath it.
Whether sitting or standing, the correct stacking of the body’s segments remains critical for the graceful, pain free and easy movement of the body.
