Most women have their entire lives centered on their waist, breasts and hips. Hardly anyone attaches importance to a simple posture, which is a pity – it turns out that a beautiful sexy woman is one who wears her head high.
The civilization disease is slouching – sitting most of the life behind the desk, we are inevitably leaning forward, rounding our arms, we winch to the side. As a result, our body takes on the shape of a question mark, the internal organs are pushing each other and even the growth decreases even a few centimeters.
Yes, it’s possible. Everyday stress, walking, standing, wearing heavy nets and, above all, gravity, cause collagen discs between the circles to squeeze and take us millimeters. Normally, most of these losses are recovered during the night during sleep in a horizontal position, but with age and progressive defects of posture some changes become irreversible.
Especially women who during menopause and after strict weight loss diets often lose bone mass and can observe losses in growth. As if that was not enough, we bend the spine from side to side, rounded the back and push the stomach out, exposing ourselves to pain and a very unpleasant posture. The breasts are sagging, the belly is convex, the figure loses the shapes of femininity …
What to do with it?
Few of us who would reach the spine specialist would hear full approval. Usually, it turns out that we do not stick to straight, we have uneven shoulders, arms, hips or knees. In old age, it may cause serious motor problems; for the time being, it takes away our grace and … the chances of success. Studies show that erect people seem stronger, more attractive and even have a higher level of testosterone – a hormone responsible for entrepreneurship, risk taking and libido.
Mirror, please tell me …
Most of our faults can be seen in the mirror, but it’s better to ask somebody objective to assess how simple we are. Professionally one looks at the body with a profile to the wall on which an infrared beam is vertically displayed – it should theoretically pass through the middle of the ear, arm, hip, knee and ankle; in practice, this is rare.
Differences can also be observed at the height of the shoulders and knees while lying on the back with bent legs and feet aligned in one line. Chronic disturbance of the balance line causes tissue mini-injuries and can be correlated with arthritis. That is why it is so important to return to the simple attitude of homo sapiens.
Standard therapy of curvature of the spine includes exercises strengthening the muscles of the torso and abdomen and buttocks. Depending on the specific problem, we need to stretch some of our muscles, and shorten others to regain our balance. It is not a quick or easy process.
Of course, there are also plenty of alternative ideas, the most important of which is definitely the reconstruction of everyday activities. Under the supervision of a therapist, we learn to sit, bend, get up, wear, etc. The point is to develop new habits that instead of loading the spine will use the muscles of the limbs keeping the back in a straight line. Every day we usually hear advice to constantly think about getting the abdomen inside, squeezing the buttocks while walking and leaving and connecting the blades.
An interesting technique of restoring the body to the straight line presents the so-called School of Prazska. In the 1960s, a group of Czech neurologists and physiotherapists developed a method of rehabilitation consisting in imitating the movements of an infant. Turning from side to side, crawling and rolling, we help our neuro-muscular system to return to the original shape.
There are also dance, visualization and chiropractic techniques that are supposed to bring back relief. The choice depends on us, but the benefit is unquestionable – not only will we avoid many painful things in the future, but above all, we will regain the beautiful, proud attitude of a woman who, regardless of the waist circumference, emanates sex and self-confidence!
