Structural changes to the body such as pregnancy, surgeries, and even fluctuations in your weight can affect your posture. Posture can also be affected by your activity level, muscle and ligament flexibility, diet, stress level and even sleeping position.
A subluxation is the misalignment of spinal bones (vertebrae) which may cause interference to the spinal nerves. This interference can cause pain, but often it is not painful at all and can go undetected or ignored for many months or years. Because all organs and tissues depend upon the nervous system to function properly, a subluxation left uncorrected may lead to serious health problems.
