Working Behind A Computer? Here’s Why Your Posture Matters
by Matt Delgado, DC // Rhone
Dr. Roger Sperry, the Nobel Peace Prize award winner in Medicine from 1981, states that “Ninety percent of the stimulation and nutrition to the brain is generated by the movement of the spine.” This means that the brain uses most of its energy to keep the body balanced within gravity. When our posture becomes poor, the more energy the brain has to use on posture. This means there is less energy available for things like thinking, metabolizing food, or our immune system, to name a few.
