1

___ rehab uses specific post postural adjustments and exercises, DME, and ergonomics

postural

2

____ rehab aims to restore ROM, stab/strength, improve flexibility, and retrain proprioception

functional

3

early mobility benefits may not hold if postural correction isn't included in tx bc ____ and ____ work together to correct

soft tissue
neuroplasticity

4

postural issues causing abnormal biomechanics is a classic example of:

structure dictates function

5

altered biomech, pain syndromes, HA, TMJ, fibromyalgia, bone deform, disc degen, spinal lig hypertrophy, visceral d/o can all be caused by:

abnormal posture

6

3 effects of abnormal posture in the LUMBAR

hypolordosis/increased stress
fwd displacement over gravity line
flat back syndrome/pain

7

3 interconnected effects of abnormal posture in the CERVICALS

hyplordosis
pain
AHC -> tension HA

8

when the CS curve is disrupted via abnorm posture, it shifts the lordosis down into TS and causes

axial pain

9

3 skull issues that can occur out of abnorm posture

TMJ
tooth wear
craniofacial growth asymmetry

10

___ stems from back fatigue/weakness syndromes

fibromyalgia

11

__ ___ such as spur/increased dens occurs at stressed (ape) areas of CS curve, increased weight bearing
-compensatory on the other side

bone deformities

12

__ & __ __ degen occurs with abnormal posture

disc
spinal lig (oss of lig flav 2* to alt kyphosis angle)

13
