For several years now there’s a been a debate (often heated) happening in corrective exercise, osteopathic and pain specialist groups on whether posture makes a difference in pain sensitivity or athletic performance.
From my experience and research, posture effects many areas of someones life and it’s important not to disregard it’s importance.
A new study says that those with forward head posture, exhibited altered sensorimotor processing and integration measurements and less efficient skill-related physical fitness compared with athletes with normal sagittal head posture alignment.
This is significant as modern life accentuates forward head posture, whether you’re an athlete or not.
Posture also has correlations to mood, injury prevention, quality movement and situational awareness.
