Default Posture Analysis

The following was spammed to me today by a company that sells postural analysis software - claiming it as evidence why you should have postural analysis tools in your practice. Let's deconstruct...

"It's true. Several major published peer reviewed studies have exposed
posture analysis as a tool you should have in your practice. Here is a
short recap:

SPINE, 2005

• "All measures of health status showed significantly poorer scores as
C7 plumb line deviation increased."

Journal of the American Geriatrics Society, 2004

• "Older men and women with hyperkyphotic posture have higher mortality

American Journal of Pain Management, 1994

• "Spinal pain, headache, mood, blood pressure, pulse, and lung capacity
are among the functions most easily in fluenced by posture."

The Journal of Neuroscience, 2007

Bad posture could raise your blood pressure. Study finds neurolink between
position of neck muscles and high blood pressure."
