- Photograph patients and clients in front of AlignaBod® (Anterior, Posterior, Right and Left Lateral).
- Take a benchmark height measurement…height can increase as people realign, lengthen and strengthen their posture.
- Discuss your findings using the Ideal Posture Guide poster (included). You can also print and annotate your images to point out the issues.
- Design a treatment and/or exercise program to correct the posture, setting treatment goals and a defined time frame for the program/treatment.
