When do we need posture and alignment? The better question would be when do we not need posture and alignment? Everything about the body design is focused on alignment and posture, so the joints, muscles, tendons, ligaments, and bones can operate with minimal distortion, pain, or injury. For many repetitive stress, accidents, genetic composition, and more can lead to postural challenges. Seeking professional input and assessment, learning how to correct or improve old injuries, developing a program to strengthen and lengthen challenge areas, and attention to detail are all ways to start making changes. How I walk, reach, and bend are all moments to sense into my body and work towards improved functional alignment.
