How posture affects disc pressure


Have you ever noticed how you adjust the rear view mirror in your 🚗 in the morning?

Let me explain why. When you go to sleep, your intervertebral discs expand because they are resting over night, opposed to being compressed through daily activity.

The intervertebral discs serve as shock 〽️absorbers. As they are absorbing the force in between the vertebrae they become more compressed throughout the day and by the end of the day they are full of loaded compression➡️⬅️

As illustrated in the diagram above you’ll see how the load and the disc pressure increases with different 💺 seated positions.
