Postural Dysfunction

Postural dysfunction can express itself in various levels of intensity. It can cause extreme pain in some cases or it may just appear as a minor discomfort. The postural dysfunction can be either acquired as with an anterior rotation of a pelvis or be hereditary as in scoliosis. Neutral posture is when there is a balance between the musculoskeletal system front to back, left to right and upper to lower. The key to the evaluation of postural dysfunction is identifying the problem, establishing the cause and then designing a program that will encourage the return to neutral posture, and help the patient maintain this posture during both dynamic and static activities.
