    Why should you care about posture with hyperkyphosis?

    In an ideal static posture is one where all body parts are aligned vertically so that the line of gravity (LoG) passes through all joint axes, however normal body structure and interpersonal deviations make this nearly impossible (Levangie & Norkin, 2011). The goal of the “ideal posture” is to minimize energy expenditure and stress on the supporting structures. Even with an ideal erect posture, swaying motions occur which change the line of gravity (LoG) over the center of pressure (CoP) (Levangie & Norkin, 2011). Postures that attempt to minimize or correct deviations from posture within normal limits is termed compensatory posture (Levangie & Norkin, 2011). As we evaluate posture, we…
