I had 997 followers this morning. Then I started trash-tweeting the clinical importance of posture. Now I have 994. Some say I’ve been too hard on posture importance, some say not hard enough! I lean towards “not enough.” Best criticism of my posture article so far? I don’t mention potential for nocebo & unintended consequences of advice [Now corrected]. Belief in postural dysfunctional can probably drive a nocebo + spinoff beliefs about vulnerability + harmful zeal for “correction.”
