Static Posture Evaluation – Static Posture Assessment – Ideal Posture
In this short talk, chiropractor Jeffrey Tucker describes his visual observation of a patient static posture, and tells what he’s looking for from head to toe.
“There are certain points I’m always checking with every client. It’s a head-to-toe approach, but it all starts with the basics. For me, the basics are an evaluation of static posture. I want to spend a little bit of time talking as I look at a client, doing a static postural evaluation and learning what it can tell me. It’s as if I was the muscle whisperer. What would those muscles tell us if they could talk?” ~Jeffrey Tucker
