How it works

Posture Crown works like a gyroscope for body

Aligned spine helps to relieve the weight it carries. Just compare with strain when holding a book horizontally with your arms and when you hold it vertically. For every inch your head tilts forward, your neck carries an additional ten pound of weight.Doctor

One easy method to relieve the neck of its stress is through the application of spinal weights. Does that surprise you? Have someone hold your arms at your side while you try to raise them up; try it for a few times in the count of ten. Once the resistance is taken away, it feels your arms want to float up on their own! Muscles have a memory, and adapt very quickly to stressors applied loads. Simply wearing a Posture Crown for 5 to 10 minutes day can strengthen the muscles responsible for aligning the neck. Why does this work?

To a large extend, gravity governs body’s nervous system that controls our movements. Posture Crown is designed to utilize the neural righting mechanism in response to gravity in order to re-establish the proper agonist/antagonist relationship between the flexors and extensors.

With the headweight in place, skull’s center of gravity (weight) is shifted towards the center. This helps the body to align to the new center of gravity along a straight line through the spine. By doing this, body’s righting mechanism adjusts the cervical and thoracic spine to the new location of the center mass of the skull. The balancing sensation of wearing Posture Crown helps maintain this new position. Any major deviation from alignment would risk the sensation of slide off.

In response, the postural righting mechanism causes the cervical extensors to re-establish the center mass of the skull over the cervical/thoracic spine evenly.Original-Man-Standing-PC-before-after

Upon contraction of the cervical extensors, the head and neck are pulled into extension, which activates the ocular and other righting mechanisms.
The ocular mechanism is fulfilled by contraction of he cervical flexors, which pulls the skull inferior and posterior into flexion on atlas. Once the righting mechanisms have been satisfied, and the center mass of skull is adjusted correctly above the cervical spine. The new stressed position results in a proportional adaptation of all the bones, muscles, and ligaments involved.
