The cause of functional changes are primarily disorders of normal posture and movement stereotypes. It comes under the influence of faulty posture during work, improper execution of daily, repeated motor activities, faulty breathing stereotype, past injuries and surgical procedures, as well as increased mental tension and life in a constant stress.
