An individual’s body shape is inherited from both parents. Basic size and proportion cannot be changed literally since it is sophisticated phenomenon. Post–natal Qi in TCM terminology, nutrition or environment may influence the growing height, weight, or potential health. A person’s figure is characterized by the form of skeletal structures, the distribution of muscles and fat. Especially, there are many distinguishable body changes during puberty when body development is dominated by hormonal involvement for reproductive, fat distribution, and muscle mass.
There are distinct anatomic and physiologic differences between men and women in this period. For example, women have a greater percentage of body fat than men. Most of the additional body fat is distributed in their hips and lower body whereas most men carry additional subcutaneous fat in their abdomen and upper body.

Once body develops, body shape is mostly affected by body fat distribution, which is correlated to current levels of sex hormones. Depends on food habits, exercises and hormone levels, muscles and fat distribution may change unlike bone structure. Skeletal muscle can produce joint movements through concentric and eccentric movements. An inappropriate posture results in muscle imbalance from certain muscles shortening with tension while others lengthen or weaken.

It often occurs as a result of one’s daily activities and habit such as occupational repetitive activities, habitual poor postures, or psychosocial stress factors. Higher job stress makes to hold breath as a natural reaction from deep concentrations. Prolonged shallow breathing is not good for health and even generates other body stress and tension. Correcting posture in childhood and adolescence is a good way to prevent an abnormal bone growth and avoid future problems. Idiopathic scoliosis is more prevalent in young girls than boys. Normally, idiopathic scoliosis does not cause pain. Any back pain in association with scoliosis requires further investigation because this could be associated with a syrinx, disk herniation, tethered cord, tumor, or spondylosis.
