Have you started to notice hip pain or discomfort in your shoulders or knees? Do you have trouble walking up stairs or other inclines? It may be that your spinal alignment and overall posture is causing your difficulties.
The fact of the matter is that no one’s body is perfectly balanced. This can cause natural changes to the alignment of your muscles and bones and lead to slumping shoulders and painful walking. If these parts of your body are overused, trouble with your posture can only be amplified over time.
As your muscles and bones are used repeatedly, but in the wrong positions this can cause your body to naturally overcompensate for their weaknesses, leading to changes in your gait and posture. It is important, if you notice this happening, to consult a physician or physical therapist for treatment to correct your condition. Failing to do so could lead to further damage down the road.
