Want To Correct Your Posture? Try The Cogwheel Model.
The Cogwheel Model is a theory to correct the posture, where the segments of the body are all related. These segments are like cogwheels, i.e. when one part moves, the others should naturally follow. These segments are the low back/pelvis, trunk and head/neck regions.
To correct a slouched posture using the Cogwheel method, you should tilt your pelvis and lower back forward. Subsequently, the slouch in your upper back should be reduced. Your head/ neck will also be pulled back on top of the shoulders. It is the movement from a slouched posture to an upright posture through the cogwheel and the practice of this movement that gives one self-awareness to be able to manage his/her own spinal condition.
