  • 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.
