Is Walking Good Postural Exercise?

TMJ-Walking-PostureWhile walking promotes cardiovascular health it does not help strengthen or attain the best postural position for the head and neck. Proper alignment of the neck and back depends on the proper and consistent range of motion exercises to attain muscular strength and stability These exercises will let the head go back to its rightful place down the spine, thus bringing the shoulder backward. With that done the hips and lower back can now go forward and not be extended out where lower back pain and pressure can occur. Looking at our posture models will provide the pictorial answers to what you need. The orthotic will place the jaw in the proper position thus eliminating dysfunction downward into the neck and spine. Painful spasms in the neck and back as well as headaches will be relieved by treating patients in a whole body manner.
