Why Get a Spinal/Postural Screening

Spinal and posture screenings are professional diagnostic processes. They allow a close analysis of the spine and pinpoint the issues. After, they can give the right course of treatment to resolve whatever symptoms you may have.

 

Importance of Screenings

 

Spinal/postural screenings help detect neuromusculoskeletal problems. These problems affect the muscles, nerves, and joints. Ideally, a healthy spine should have gentle curves. These curves bring balance to your body and help the spine absorb stress from gravity and body movement. It is the most mechanically efficient structure for anybody's activity.

 

Poor posture pulls the ribcage, pelvis, and head out of alignment. It also contributes to diseases like arthritis, scoliosis, and sports-related injuries. Screening helps mitigate this before it becomes a problem.

 

How Do They Work?


The doctor can start by taking your medical and family history. They will perform physical examinations and use imaging tests like X-rays for a close spinal check. There are two components to spinal/postural screenings. These are:

 

  • Static Analysis

 

Static analysis involves evaluating your rotation posture, pelvic tilt, and elevation posture. As the doctor evaluates these, he assesses your mobility and confirms if you have any pain.

 

  • Dynamic Postural Analysis

 

The dynamic postural analysis evaluates whether you have alignment issues. Most of these are evident when you move, and many people compensate for these deviations as they move. You may favor one leg or have pain in other parts of the body.

 

The doctor may ask you to raise your hands, stand on one leg, or attempt to push up. As you do these, the doctor will assess your form.
