Stand against a wall with your heels, buttocks and shoulder blades touching the wall. Now place your hand behind you and feel if there is a gap between the low back and the wall.
If you can get your arm all the way through to the other side of your body you have an anterior tilt in your hips and this is a type 1 posture.
Now check to see if you can get the back of your head on the wall without your jaw line pointing at an upward angle, If you can not do this you probably have rounded shoulders as well which is also a type 1 posture.
Stand in front of a full-length mirror or sliding glass door, so that you can see your entire body. Now, close your eyes and run in place for 10 seconds.
After 10 seconds, come to an abrupt halt and completely relax – but don’t move! Now open your eyes, and examine your posture in the mirror.
Is one shoulder lower than the other? Does that shoulder have a crease in the armpit that’s more severe than the other shoulder?
If you are like most people, you’ll see your right shoulder lower and more forward than your left. Also is one hip higher than the other,
is one hip closer to mirror than the other. If this is the case, you have some rotation and imbalance which will make you a Type 2 posture.
Stand against a wall with your heels touching the the wall.
If you have a Posterior Pelvic Tilt, it won’t be difficult to get your lower back flush against the wall.
Next, completely relax and try to get your head back against the wall - without arching or pushing your lower back off the wall.
If this is difficult for you and you can’t get your ear to line up with your shoulder, then mostly likely you have a Type 3 posture.
