Mechanical Stress

Incorrect Posture

The body is designed to withstand a certain amount of physical force, such as bumps, jerks and falls, but if the mechanical stress goes beyond the body’s limit of adaptability, the effects may become stored as “body stress”.
The causes may be sudden and violent, such as a car accident, a severe fall, or lifting a heavy object incorrectly. There may also be a gradual accumulation of milder mechanical stress as a result of sitting incorrectly, or routinely doing inappropriate exercises.
