Is bad posture creating your headaches?

Your bad posture could be contributing to your headaches and potentially much more!

Good posture is esthetically pleasing, but that’s typically where the importance ends in most peoples’ minds.  However, bad posture is a HUGE problem!

Bad posture is a sign of shifting and core problems with your nervous system.

Your nervous system runs everything in the body.  It controls how your body regulates pain, blood flow, energy levels, hormonal balance, etc.

And your spine protects the delicate nervous system.


When there’s shifting in the spine, or what may appear to be bad posture, it means there will be problems found with the nervous system.

The reason for this is the shifting of the spine puts pressure on the nervous system and causes it to work much harder than it would normally.  This causes fatigue and ultimately leads to core problems.

These core problems can contribute to migraines and headaches, but they can also contribute to many other things that you might not even be thinking about.

Typically, bad posture begins with the head moving forward out in front of the body.  This can happen through a number of different causes.

Once the head shifts forward, it causes the rest of the body to compensate.  This causes multiple changes in posture and ultimately, shifting in structure.

Bad posture doesn’t just look bad, it causes the body to work bad.  

What can you do?

The first step is to analyze yourself and determine if there’s a problem.

I’ve created a special tool to allow you to do this in the comfort of your home.

You can get the instructions on how to conduct the analysis here: Postural Self-Assessment Tool

If you determine that you have shifting in your posture, the next step would be to seek out someone to analyze the state of your spine and nervous system.

If you are experiencing symptoms, such as headaches, migraines, low-energy, or sleeping trouble, this could all be from your bad posture.
