Attachment disorder in adults

Attachment theory deals with how people form emotional bonds. The way that a person learns to form and maintain relationships primarily stems from their initial interactions with a parent or primary caregiver during childhood. Psychologists initially studied and categorized different types of attachment that can develop during childhood. Researchers later developed the Adult Attachment Interview to distinguish the types in adults. The questions assess the type of early relationship that an adult had with their primary caregiver. Types of attachment in adults are similar to those observed in children. An attachment disorder can have a detrimental effect on a person’s personal relationships and overall quality of life. However, treatment can help. Psychotherapy helps a person identify and understand thoughts and behaviors that may be negatively affecting their relationships. Once a person has addressed these issues, they can develop tools and coping strategies that work. Ideally, treatment should begin in childhood. A child who has experienced any form of neglect or maltreatment likely needs psychological support, regardless of whether they have an attachment disorder. Anyone who feels that their thoughts or behaviors are negatively impacting their relationships should consider consulting a doctor or psychotherapist. An adult is unlikely to receive a diagnosis of an attachment disorder because the clinical guidelines only recognize these issues in children. Nonetheless, if a child with an attachment disorder does not receive effective treatment, the symptoms can manifest or continue into adulthood, causing difficulties with social interactions and relationships.

lower cross syndrome

According to the National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM), LCS is one of the most common compensatory patterns in the body. In other words, the body adds a new movement in an attempt to make up for a lack of movement or strength in one area of the body. In this case, weakened muscles include the abdominal muscles and the gluteus maximus, which is the largest muscle in the buttocks. People with LCS typically also have tightened hip flexors and lumbar erector spinae — the group of muscles running from the base of the skull to the hip. In many people with LCS, the tightened muscles pull the pelvis out of its normal alignment. The abdominals and gluteus maximus typically offer a counterpull and keep the pelvis in line. However, weakness in these muscles allows the additional pull from the hip flexors and lumbar erector spinae to change the person’s posture and movement patterns. To compensate for these issues, the person’s lower back arches, and their pelvis tilts forward. Other people may notice different changes in their posture, depending on the affected muscles. The most effective treatments aim to fix the imbalance by strengthening some muscles and stretching or relaxing others. A person should work with a certified fitness professional or physical therapist to develop a suitable treatment program to meet their needs
