Defects in the skeletal system and imbalances in muscle strength in the core will eventually lead to body alignment issues. These imbalances place extra stress on specific muscle groups, soft tissue, and cartilage.
Over time, overcompensation issues develop as the individual attempts to shift weight away from one problematic area of the body. Surrounding and supporting muscle groups end up bearing more stress and as result, aches and pain develop in new regions. It truly can become a never ending cycle, which is why a focus on body alignment is critical.
