Does spinal Misalignment Affect Vision?
Vision and posture are intricately linked.
The eyes are extensions of the brain and therefore a part of our central nervous system.
When light strikes the photoreceptor cells (rods and cones) on the retina in the back of the eye, signals and messages travel as impulses and synapses through the optic nerve to the visual cortex in the back of the brain, which processes and interprets information to send down the spinal cord and onward to the rest of the body. If the posture is not aligned these lightning-fast connections can be severed or skewed. Improper posture over time can gradually lead to shallow breathing, decreased circulation, stagnated lymph flow, physical fatigue and blurred vision. posture worsens through a strain to see either a close or distant object by reaching the neck forward or cranking it back. Vision and posture are intertwined and can either work together to spiral downward toward imbalance or spiral upward toward optimal functioning. Your body will start to realize that clearer vision comes when in a aligned and corrected posture.
