Digital Posture and Movement Analysis

Posture is more than how you look when sitting or standing. Good posture is the ideal spine alignment and body positioning that puts the least strain on the body.  Good posture distribute weight evenly so that no one body part is stressed.  Good posture reduces the stress on joints, protects the ligaments of the spine, and allows muscles to work efficiently to reduce fatigue. Bad posture puts abnormal stress on the spine and can cause premature spine arthritis and degenerative disc disease.
