THE POSTURE TEST
We are all 'uniquely unique' and because of our individuality, we don't necessarily believe in the 'One Size Fits All' approach. We invite you to take the tests that are presented here so that you can find out your Posture Type. After determining your Posture Type, we suggest that you begin to incorporate that particular Posture Program. In time, you'll find that the exercises become easier to do - and at that point, begin to incorporate the Flexibility Program into your routine, followed by the Core Strengthening Program.
The Posture System Test #1 is the Rounded Shoulders/Forward Head Posture. In this revealing test, Roger will explain how to determine if this is your posture type. If so, start with the Posture System - Rounded Shoulders/Forward Head protocol.

FORWARD HEAD POSTURE

• Head tilts forward and down.
• Lower back has an increased arch
• Knee caps angled outward
• Knees and ankles are stiff and sore
• Feet are everted
• This posture is a sign of weakness
• Hips are too weak thus reversed and tilted under
• Head juts forward, droops down from gravity pull
• Back, shoulder and neck pain
• Rounded, drooping shoulders
• Both hops are tilted under
• S-Curve of the lower spine flattened out
• Arms hang so back of hand are showing in front
• Weak hips cannot support the upper body
• Upper torso rotation
• Hip rotation
• Head angled off-line to one side
• Shoulder drooped forward and down
• Back of hand showing and may be hanging lower than other hand
• Friction placed upon the joints, especially the lower back
