THE LINK BETWEEN POSTURE, HEALTH, AND DEATH...
Not convinced that you need to improve posture? Below is a sampling of scientific evidence demonstrating the importance of good posture…
Hyperkyphotic Posture Predicts Mortality in Older Community-Dwelling Men and Women: “Older men and women with hyperkyphotic posture have higher mortality rates.”
Spinal Kyphosis Causes Demyelination and Neuronal Loss in the Spinal Cord: “Progressive kyphosis of the cervical spine resulted in demyelination of nerve fibers due to chronic compression of the spinal cord.”
The effects of upright and slumped postures on the recall of positive and negative thoughts: “This study supports the finding that positive thoughts are more easily recalled in the upright posture.”
Clinical characteristics of flexed posture in elderly women: “The severity of FP in elderly female patients is related to the severity of vertebral pain, emotional status, muscular impairments, and motor function, and FP has a measurable effect on disability.
The Impact of Positive Sagittal Balance in Adult Spinal Deformity: “All measures of health status showed significantly poorer scores as C7 plumb line deviation increased. This study shows that although even mildly positive sagittal balance is somewhat detrimental, severity of symptoms increases in a linear fashion with progressive sagittal imbalance”
Postural and Respiratory Modulation of Autonomic Function, Pain, and Health: “Observations of the striking influence of postural mechanics on function and symptomatology have led to our hypothesis that posture affects and moderates every physiologic function from breathing to hormonal production. Spinal pain, headache, mood, blood pressure, pulse, and lung capacity are among the functions most easily influenced by posture.”
