The Brain Learns to Hold on to Stress, Trauma, and Misuse in the Body — Long After it’s Gone

Essentially, the brain controls all motor function through activation of learned neural pathways. And, like any learning, the more that the brain perceives a particular activity as repeated, the more it "holds on to" that pattern and habituatues it further — whether or not it is dysfunctional. In other words, one's body patterns over time eventually adapt, through brain plasticity, into a "new normal" (whether that new normal is good or bad, empowering or disabling). Therefore as long as we are able to identify these pattens which most of the times are with the help of a professional we will be able to undo these pattens and create more balance in the posture and alignment of the body.
