|No two bodies are alike so it's important to treat you as an individual. Your initial assessment is the key to long-term success. We follow the chain of muscular imbalances and dysfunction to its source.
Performing an assessment will help determine what type of care plan is appropriate. Existing conditions can often be improved simply with advice and recommendations, and more chronic problems can be treated following the assessment.
The care plan is contingent on agreed upon goals whether to relieve pain, restore lost mobility, or assist in injury recovery.
Postural assessments include:
* Examination of the alignment when the subject is standing
* Tests for flexibility and muscles length
* Tests for muscle strength as well as palpation techniques.
Assessment procedure observation is done while standing and then expanding this to include sitting and lying down.
