Poor Posture

Home - Poor Posture

In the modern era, three conditions have become prevalent among patients. The combination of a sedentary lifestyle and excessive technology use often leads individuals to adopt forward postures, resulting in what is commonly known as “tech neck.” This posture misalignment pulls the bones out of their proper alignment, causing compensatory muscle spasms in the neck and head. This, in turn, contributes to neck pain, headaches, and even migraines.

Understanding the Effects of Forward Posture on Muscles

An easy way to assess the impact of forward posture is to feel the muscles on the back of your neck, extending up to your head. Many individuals will notice tight muscles and lumps, known as trigger points, in this area. These chronic muscle spasms are a result of the bones in the spine being stuck forward. As the body lacks muscles capable of correcting this misalignment, it compensates by spasming the muscles of the back, neck, and shoulders, attempting to lean the individual back.

The Significance of Chronic Muscle Spasms

Chronic muscle spasms persist even after repeated attempts to alleviate them, revealing a deeper underlying problem. Additionally, conditions like scoliosis and reversed neck curvatures are often compensatory responses to the primary issue: bones misaligned forward and internal scar tissue formation.

Impact of Forward Posture on the Nervous System

As explained in our ABC technique video, forward misalignment of bones is accompanied by the development of thick scar tissue within the spine. This scar tissue binds between the inside of the bones and the nervous system. Both the forward bones and internal scar tissue contribute to tension in the nervous system and brainstem.

The Role of the Spinal Cord in Neurological Symptoms

The spinal cord, a vital structure within the spine, acts as the connecting tube to the brain, facilitating communication between the two. When forward posture, caused by misaligned bones and scar tissue, stretches the spinal cord, the tension extends up to the brainstem, leading to various neurological symptoms. Examples of such symptoms include pain, numbness/tingling, headaches, migraines, vertigo, balance issues, and sciatica.

ABC™ Technique: Correcting Misalignment and Eliminating Neurological Symptoms

ABC™ technique focuses on moving the bones back into their proper position, allowing the body to relax spasmed muscles and alleviate neurological symptoms. Additionally, full spine stretches are employed to address and break up internal scar tissue.

Complementary Approach: Functional Nutrition

In some cases, untreated health issues may contribute to headaches and migraines. ABC™ technique incorporates functional nutrition, which analyzes lab work to assess body function rather than solely looking for diseases. When an organ or system is found to be functioning suboptimally, targeted support through vitamins, herbs, minerals, and other nutrients can address the underlying causes of the issues at their source, rather than merely treating the symptoms.

Addressing the Limitations of Conventional Medicine

Conventional medical approaches often focus on diagnosing diseases and providing symptomatic treatment. As a result, individuals with symptoms that do not meet the disease criteria may be labeled as normal, despite their suffering. Functional nutrition and chiropractic care offer a more comprehensive perspective, addressing underlying imbalances and providing holistic solutions.
