A client’s posture can be indicative of their movement potential – it can give clues as to where they are strong or weak, supported or restricted. It is never a diagnosis but a source of better questions that give a clearer understanding for program design or treatments that best match their needs.

Our approach to postural analysis lets you start asking better questions about how to improve the client’s efficiency. Posture should be metabolically economical it should not be hard work.

Our tensegrity-based approach is not locked in any protocol – just based on the reality of anatomy and can be adapted to your modality.

We will explore the influence of gravity and ground reaction forces in relation to real anatomy and give you the ability to see the real picture. With no jargon and no false promises. This will give you the freedom to then explore with your own lens.

The approach is simple and based in real-world anatomy, we will look at:

Effects of Compression – Gravity, ground reaction force and the natural coupling through the skeletal system and how it might affect soft tissues.

Effects of Tension or ‘Shortness’ – What is the soft tissue balance? More importantly, what has changed in the soft tissues’ ability for movement?

Effects of Weakness in the Tissues – Viewing the body as a tensegrity system, it requires enough inherent stiffness or tone within the soft tissues as well the bones. What happens when we lose that tone and how can we get it back?

This workshop is designed to:

• train your eye and hand to improve assessments – to both feel what you see and see what you feel

• understand and test for the real reasons for the patterns

• enable you to build an individual program for your client with a better idea of where to start

You will be able to:

• describe posture with a non-judgemental descriptive language

• differentiate between drivers of postural compensation

• to assess the difference between them

• design individualised programs for your client

Good programs come from good assessments. Although postural analysis is NOT a diagnosis, it is a beginning of good assessment, the source of better questions and the start of training your eye for efficiency of movement.
