We all know slouching doesn’t look very flattering but most of us find ourselves hoovered over our computers for hours at a time not knowing the damage we are causing. We’ve heard how important it is to have good posture a couple times before but do we really know why?  

Good posture entails distributing the force of gravity through our body so no one structure is over stressed. Good posture helps with the proper positioning of the spine and as a result leads to the proper functioning of internal organs.

Jeremy Wehking PT, FAAOMPT, OCS, PRC is a physical therapist in Miami FL who is certified by the Postural Restoration Institute who recognizes these imbalances with system disuse which develops because of dominant overuse caused by bad posture.  

This dominant overuse of one side of the body can develop from other systems unilateral overuse and cause harm to one’s body as a result. Jeremy uses PRI’s (Postural Restoration Institute) training to explore and explain the science of postural adaptations, asymmetrical patterns and the influence of polyarticular chains of muscles. Through his certification with PRI he uses innovative treatments that address the primary contributions of postural kinematic movement dysfunction.
