Lee Believes compensations accumulate over time.
Over time posture can become more and more idiosyncratic. Compensations develop, posture, weight bearing, joint centring and muscular balance can all go out of the window. In clinical language uncoordinated muscles, joint instability and fascial stiffness all lead to poor posture. All you know is that you are stiff and achy or your back has gone or your neck has seized.
The leave it and see approach to muscle aches and joint stiffness enables accumulation to occur. As there is no factory reset your brain simply doesn’t know what ‘good’ posture is.
