Romberg's pose is called a special position, with the help of which neuropathologists determine the degree of disorder of the human nervous system by the instability of a person in it. However, this position can be used not only for diagnostics, but also for improving the condition of the spine, as well as restoring muscle tone.
To perform the Romberg pose, you need to take an upright position, placing your feet together and connecting the socks to the heels so that they touch each other. Similarly, you need to put your knees, and the body weight should be evenly distributed on both feet - while the weight on their central part should be equal to the weight on the heel and toe. When performing the pose, the shoulders should be deployed, and the shoulder blades should be slightly shifted and lowered down. The spine should be extended upward as much as possible and the sacrum should be placed vertically, slightly moving the lower back back.
For the final straightening of the ridge, you need to slightly move the shoulder girdle back, tilting the head forward and lowering the chin, move the middle part of the neck back with it. The abdomen in the Romberg position should be relaxed, while the elongation of the spine should be strictly controlled. The muscles of the legs and trunk should be relaxed only slightly, while the arms should hang calmly along the body. This position is normal and correct for a healthy person.
With the help of the Romberg pose, elderly people can not only provide support to their spine, but also restore shaky health. In this position, the success of training depends on the slowness of relaxation - the slower it is, the more smoothly the blood circulation improves, and the internal organs, squeezed due to muscle spasms and improper posture, return to their natural outlines and volumes.
For a daily activity, after mastering the pose itself, you can add hand movements. To do this, you need to take this position and slowly straighten your arms while inhaling - starting from the fingertips and ending with the shoulder joints. They should be lifted through the sides and palms up, making small pauses between inhalation and exhalation, during which the shoulders should be lowered down and relaxed, leaving the spine straight. With good mobility of the shoulder joints, the raised arms should form a kind of "glass" around the head. On exhalation, the lowered hands should be turned with the palms towards the body, "closing" them.
