Centre of Gravity

Overview

    • Look For

    • The line that falls from the earlobe down through the chest, abdomen, pelvis and lower limb (line of gravity).
    • Significance

    • Optimal posture involves the balanced distribution of body mass around the centre of gravity, with minimal muscular energy use. Any deviation from this results in instability, weakness and pain.
