Rene Cailliet M.D. former director of the department of physical medicine and rehabilitation at the University of Southern California states: "Most attempts to correct posture are directed toward the spine, shoulders, and pelvis. All are important, but head position takes precedence over all others. The body follows the head. Therefore, the entire body is best aligned by first restoring proper functional alignments to the head."
Dr. Cailliet also wrote, "Head in forward posture can add up to 30 pounds of abnormal leverage on the cervical spine. This can pull the entire spine out of alignment." When the head is forward the shoulders follow and the upper back goes back resulting in slumped posture.
The lower back will usually compensate in one of two ways: flattening of the lumbar curve resulting in posture referred to as a "sad C", because the body resembles the letter "c" from the side, or a shifting of the center of the normal forward curve, or "lordosis", so that it goes in the most , lower than normal, just above the tailbone or "sacrum " instead of the waist. This configuration would be labeled "sway back".
The best posture correction can be achieved if head posture is addressed. Wouldn't it be fantastic, if in addition to the head, the rest of the spine, shoulder, sacroiliac, and pelvic joints were simultaneously shifted to the best possible posture? What would you say if this could be achieved, DIY, with very little effort at home or work.
Well... look no further., the Tru-Align Body System by Kacelia is the perfect posture correction solution.
One simply lies face down on cushions, on the floor or therapy table, for a minimum of 20 minutes per session, at least five days a week. The Tru-Align is customizable from 40-400 and is approved for clinical use. The body is held up at key points while allowing gravity to gradually and gently exert a downward pressure. Over time, the soft tissues supporting the skeletal structure are simultaneously remodeled to an excellent biomechanical posture. Most people, after achieving excellent results, cut back the frequency of treatments in three to eight months.
Having a "Tru-Align" body has too many health benefits in addition to posture correction to list here. For more information on the Tru-Align Body System
