Associated Postural Abnormalities
Posture and gait go hand-in-hand. If you have a postural abnormality, you are very likely to have a co-existent gait abnormality.
Posturally, you may have forward or un-level shoulders, a stooped neck, a humped back, or scoliosis. The worst of these postural problems usually coincide with:
- Joint sprain injuries of the shoulders, vertebral column, sacroiliac joints, and peripheral joint injuries of the hip, knees, and ankles-feet.
- Strength imbalance and general weakness of upper body (shoulder and thoracic) or lower body (abdominal and low back) core muscle groups—and
- Short leg syndrome with scoliosis.
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy would be more appropriate if the sprain injury and dysfunction are due to significant ligament or tendon tearing.
