Breathe in, Breathe out and let your body slump!

Advanced Biostructural Correction™
After years of sitting at a computer and now being leant over people, my posture was suffering. Modern life, looking at my mobile phone, sitting on my sofa and even driving was causing me pain. At the end of the day my body was tired. I needed a chiropractor for regular maintenance. I came across a relatively new technique called Advanced Biostructural Correction. This technique treats bones out of place. A bone can go out of place and the body cannot self correct, because there are no muscles or combination of muscles that can pull the bone back into alignment. You can see the picture on the left. When asked to breathe out, my body slumps forward, my head has gone forward and my shoulders roll forward. My back problems started when I was in my early twenties. I have a history of back pain, which has left me with numbness in my right leg. With Advanced Biostructural Correction, another unique aspect of the treatment is the releasing of scar tissue that builds up inside the spinal canal called “meningeal adhesions”. This is done with very specific stretches to the spine itself. With the release of this scar tissue, it allows the body to unwind, to straighten up.
After 6 weeks of treatment, my posture had changed. After years of being in pain, the pain had reduced significantly, I could now walk without the burning sensation in my leg, which usually came on after twenty minutes. I was so impressed by this technique I decided to learn it. This technique has changed my posture for the better. It has allowed me to be more upright without any additional effort. From the picture on the right:
My shoulders now sit back with no muscular effort
My head has come backwards and no longer falls forward
and my chest is lifted and I stand more upright
I have changed how I sit, stand and yes, even how I sleep. Advanced Biostructural Correction™ is changing my posture for the better, there is still a way to go, a life-time of bad habits doesn’t fix itself overnight, but I certainly see the benefits of how my posture is improving over time.
