If you recall my last article (Aug. '08), I spoke about muscular balance and how offsetting this natural equilibrium can alter spinal position. It is virtually impossible to be in perfect anatomical position every minute, but we can reverse a lot of the damage our daily routines cause. The key is to use exercises that specifically target the muscle groups responsible for poor posture. Another great way to combat poor anatomical alignment is to switch arms or sides in whatever you're doing. For example, if you have a baby, switch the arm that you hold her with or carry the car safety seat in the other arm. When you grocery shop, evenly load your bags into both arms if you're carrying them. Women should switch the shoulder they carry their pocketbook on, and so on. Try challenging yourself to use your nondominant side in every daily task if you can: It'll make a difference.
