A couple of years ago, I had to see an osteopath because of back pain. As he tortured my skeleton, he explained how the body adjusts to anomaly, trauma and imbalance. If your hip is a little out of joint, your pelvis shifts a tad the other way to compensate, your spine bends accordingly, and so on. Often, this results in your head ending up slightly tilted. “When you walk out of here,” the osteopath explained, “everything may seem at an angle because of the adjustments I made. In actual fact, you will be seeing the world straight for the first time in years.”
