reached across the counter to scan my purchases In an instant her friendly smile dissolved Oh, man Ive got to get to the chiropractor I watched as she twisted her torso this way and that, trying to relieve the pain without attracting too much attention But she had mine Why was an attractive twenty something complaining about her body to a customer True, it was closing time, the end of a long day But it was only Wednesday and the new Target had been open less than a week Her name tag said Carmen Maybe she was in a fender bender, I thought, and thats why shes looking for a doctor But just as likely not Just as likely it was the way she used her body that had her tied in knots.As a movement therapist, its my job to correct the poor posture and poor movement habits that underlie my clients complaints and symptoms People often consult with me as a last resort when conventional medical approaches have failed to give them relief Sometimes it takes months of gradual change for someone to transform his or her posture enough to eliminate pain, but sometimes theres a quick and easy fix I wondered whether I might find just the right comment to set Carmen on the road to healthy posture.If I was to say something helpful, I needed to hit the mark with my assessment and offer a solution that would work right away Most people have little patience for complicated advice about body maintenance.The pretty woman was tall, five foot ten or , with long legs and a short torso When the cash drawer opened, it seemed low in relation to her height As she reached for my change, folding inward at the waist as she must have done dozens of times that day, my own body signaled, Ouch There it was, I felt sure low back pain Carmen was among the eighty five percent of Americans who experience back pain sometime in their lives.The checkers ill fitting workstation tall girl short counter was part of her problem, but I wanted to consider other factors before offering a solution Sometimes poor eyesight or bad lighting makes people hunch over their work Poor posture caused by poor vision can persist even after vision has been corrected But no, Carmens neck seemed free, with no trace of the forward straining neck tension that accompanies faulty eyesight or faulty hearing.I glanced at the floor Only a thin rubber mat protected the checkers feet from the concrete floor Hard surfaces take a toll on the best of feet But Carmens shoes looked sturdy Barring foot problems that I couldnt see, the shoes seemed supportive enough.Okay, then, what could I observe about the young womans spine As she stood, Carmens lower back looked balanced, neither overly straight nor overly curved But could she freely bend and straighten it When she leaned forward, there was a smooth release of back muscles that let her vertebrae separate slightly as they must to allow forward bending So, no problem with her flexibility Nor were her buttocks tucking under, a pattern that could fix her lower back in a bent position, that could make straightening a hazard Seemingly her spine was as adaptable as it looked.Finally I saw both problem and solution Carmen was stuck in a pattern I usually associated with women over thirty, so it had taken me a while to notice camouflaged within the girls tight jeans was a flaccid belly not a fat belly, just an under active one I watched as she bent to retrieve a box of tissues that had fallen to the floor She straightened, then reached down again for a shopping bag Each time she bent down, her belly bulged forward In healthy forward bending, the abdominal organs settle back into the abdominal cavity Because Carmens abdominal muscles were lax, her organs fell forward, putting unnecessary drag on her lower vertebrae She desperately needed abdominal support.If only I could show this woman how to engage what I call the inner corset In my minds eye she grew statuesque I imagined her jeans fitting better, her chest opening, her shoulders relaxing, and her back pain a distant memory And, with better abdominal support, Carmen might unexpectedly benefit from improved digestion Emotionally, shed be better able to contain her gut feelings, and have better boundaries to her relationships.Shed bagged my purchases by now It would take only minutes to explain.But it was closing time Shoppers, no doubt many of them also wishing for a chiropractic adjustment, clad in line behind me, hoping to get the kids to bed before ten I handed Carmen my card I can help you with your back, I said, as the customer behind me jostled into place The checker gave me a blank look Have a good night, she said.WHY HEAL YOUR POSTURE Such a picture is not unfamiliar, but it doesnt have to be true You can have a body that stands gracefully and moves
