This is a great article. I like how you brake it down to the molecular level. I also like how you mention that the body will adapt itself to the bad/ good postural movement and become more efficient at doing/ maintaining them.

Thank you,

Michol, this is truly a great article and WELL ahead of it's time! I've been reading anatomy trains for about 3 years myself, and your explanations of fascia and bonds and forces are fantastic and very readable. Thank you, and I also would love to read any other additions to this article.
