MYOEFFECT AND STRAIGHT POSTURE

Why is Straight Posture Important?

Straight posture will improve your: Athletic performance: Regardless of practice or training, if an athlete has poor posture and a forward head position, he or she will never perform up to his or her optimal physical potential. Career: According to a recent research study conducted by the Kellogg School of Business, straight posture may be more significant to a person’s psychological manifestations of power than their title or rank alone. Straight posture also has a strong effect in causing a person to think and act in a more powerful way. Life: You are less likely to suffer from head, neck and back pain due to poor posture. You will appear more confident.  

How can MyoEffect improve your posture?

MyoEffect sees poor posture as a result of imbalanced facial muscles that cause the lower jaw to move upwards and backwards. The throat volume will shrink, making proper breathing and swallowing difficult. In order to breathe and swallow easily, the patient has to tilt the head upwards. However, because the patient’s eyes need to be horizontally leveled due to human reflexes, the patient will move the head forward instead of tilting upwards. This results in a forward head position, slouching or poor posture, known as the bowling ball effect. The MyoEffect treatment method will widen the upper jaw and return both the upper jaw and lower jaw to their ideal positions. In the process, this will increase the throat volume, resulting in improved posture.
