Welcome to the course “The Complete Guide for Postural Assessment”

Postural assessment requires detailed observation of static posture for alignment and visual and palpable assessment of paired anatomical landmarks for symmetry.

A thorough and detailed postural assessment is an important tool and the first step in beginning postural management.  This process is used to better understand the root cause of musculoskeletal injuries or pathologies.  If a postural fault will go unnoticed and uncorrected, in just a matter of time, the repetition of the same activities with the wrong body mechanics will eventually result in soreness and pain and will in the long run lead you to an injury.  Even with symptomatic treatment approach, the same injury will tend to happen again unless the major cause of muscular imbalance is addressed.  These muscular imbalance will present itself as postural faults.  Identifying and managing postural faults at the early stage is essential in avoiding the possibilities of the condition worsening and presenting irreversible unnatural structural changes in the body.

This course will equip you with the necessary skills needed to complete a thorough postural assessment for your clients or patients.  The information you gather in your assessment is basic and essential in designing a personalized client-specific treatment plan.

In this course we will be reviewing and comparing the natural and the unnatural spinal curvature, the different postural faults and the structures involved in each of them.  Most importantly, we will be discussing what to specifically look for in a static postural assessment and how to properly execute dynamic postural assessments that covers movements done in the frontal, sagittal and transverse planes of the body.

The ideal student for this course are healthcare professionals like physiotherapist and chiropractors or fitness professionals like personal training specialist, sports therapists, kinesiologists, body builders and athletes.
