The difference between alignment and posture

THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN ALIGNMENT AND POSTURE

Posture is how something looks.  Alignment is how something works.  Oftentimes, we inter-change these two words whereas from a biomechanical standpoint, they are different.

Posture is essentially all the bad habits rolled into one massive ‘look at what you’ve done to yourself’ to end up to this point.  Posture is basically how something looks.

Alignment is the path backwards from where you are now to what we’re all striving for = optimum positioning, function and alignment of our system as a whole.  Alignment therefore is how something works.
