Posture exercise in youth keeps you standing tall
New study looked at how posture breaks down with age. Largest point of breakdown- the head moving forward of the pelvis.
Their conclusion about what they call the Cranial Center of Gravity:
“The CCG measurement correlated the most with age and may be a useful index marker of global spinal balance in decision making for surgical treatment of adult deformity involving cervical and thoracolumbar lesions.”
Put another way, Do your StrongPosture® exercise to keep standing tall when you are young to stay active as you get older. And benchmark where you are now with annual PosturePictures (and perhaps the PostureZone app)
