Posture Concepts, Posture Pictures, and FREE Resources to help your Posture Month be a success
Observing posture is a window to assessing bio-mechanics, and correlating someone’s function with their symptoms.

most effective ways to benchmark that function. Motion and bio-mechanical pain conditions affect Punjabi’s three subsystems of motion – the active CONTRACTING muscles, the passive CONNECTING ligaments, tendons, bone and fascia, and the CONTROLLING nervous systems – CNS, PNS and autonomic. Kinetic chain motion is complex, and the interaction of the Contracting, Connecting and Controlling motion systems’ compensation and adaptation to balance the body creates asymmetry and sensori-motor errors.
Static posture assessment can be a great proxy for observing those errors within an individual, in the disparity between how someone thinks they are standing, and the truth told by a picture. Especially when tracked over time, postural patterns are valuable observation to be correlated with history and objective findings.
