What are the factors that influence posture? Certainly it may be the holding of an incorrect position for a long time: think when we are working on the computer, or to repeat incorrect movements continuously, to lift a weight, but then there are the factors that influence it unconsciously because the posture, should not be forgotten, is an unconscious attitude. First of all the sight, we think of an eye that focuses differently from the other, not only that it sees less, it will tend to make the head rotate therefore to disturb all that is underneath, so also the hearing, an ear that feels less than the other will ensure that we always tend to turn the head towards the ear that hears more, but then to go down also the chewing, the stomatognathic apparatus, the dental occlusion and the lingual system with its connections deep with the neck.
But another factor that disturbs the posture are the scars, think of a scar, which is nothing more than a portion of skin in tension, so as not to feel that tension, even unconsciously, we tend to deviate. Other factors that affect heavily posture are the viscera and internal organs, tensions, bad digestion, even emotional tensions that accumulate in the stomach, on the liver, up to our foot. The foot, is very trivial, but it is the foundation of our support base body, any movement any instability of the foot inevitably has repercussions on everything on it. The most classic example but which gives a good idea of the Pisa tower that hangs because the foundations, our foot, have collapsed on one side.
