The head and neck are not necessarily the most important parts of a person’s body, according to Dr. Steven D. Ragan, the president of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons.
But, the spine can affect posture and movement, as well as overall health.
Ragon, a neurosurgeon at the University of Rochester Medical Center, has written a book called The Anatomy of Mind, which details how the head and spinal cord work together to help control the body.
Here, Ragon discusses the basics of proper alignment, how to correct your posture, and the benefits of proper posture.
The Next Go To Headlines In the early 20th century, people used to lie down in their bed and pretend they had a great sense of balance, according a new book by Dr. Rago.
When they went to bed, they would sit on a chair and put their feet on the floor, Ragan writes.
When you were asleep, your spine would tilt and you would feel as though your spine was on the verge of falling off.
Ragin says there are different types of alignment issues.
Some people may have a slight tilt in their spine or they may have an uneven angle between the spine and the back of the head.
Others have problems with the alignment of their spinal column.
Raggs also says people with more curvature of the spine may need to stretch and rotate the spine more frequently, and that can cause discomfort.
When people lie on their back and tilt their head forward, the curvature in their spinal canal can push the back muscles into a position where they can’t properly pull the head forward.
Ragen also recommends a good posture when walking, and a proper alignment between the neck and spine.
If you are prone to back pain, Ragen says it is important to get an orthopedic surgeon to assess your spine, because you can get back surgery.
Here are some common alignment issues: A lack of balance The spine should be aligned correctly.
