Muscular Therapy Laying Assessment

Welcome back to the Schreiber Pain Relief Institute YouTube channel. Earlier, we showed a standing assessment of the body. I want to show you a lying down assessment of the body.

We’ll bring the legs together. You can see that the left leg is slightly shorter than the right leg. And we’re going to go through this quickly. That would tell you that there’s more rotation in this hip. And if you followed the last video, his left iliac crest bone, hip bone, was lower toward the table. Okay, bring your hands up. The space between his ribcage and his hips, pretty even, a little less on this side. And in the last video with this gentleman, there was a lower left shoulder. Okay? Now remember also in the assessment, that we’ve done this before with the knee caps, that this knee caps are both higher, and this one’s also tilted. If you were looking at the head of… started looking here at the foot of the table, his knee cap should be more even like this, but it’s pulled down on the outside, but that’s also due to the rotation of this hip.

So since he’s young and his body’s still resilient, it’s not causing the issues that it would in someone who was older. Those problems would start to cause pain. The kneecap on this leg is pretty centered and level, slightly tilted but not a lot. Okay? Now you can also see how the toes are on this gentleman. The tinier the calves are, the tighter the quads are, it’s going to pull up on the heel, the calcaneus, and as the calf muscle, which is attached to the heel by the Achilles, as it pulls upward, your body wants to kind of go forward and the curve in the toes increase. And you also see how, if I bring his foot toward his nose, how the toes straighten. You can see it on that side and you can see it on this side, also. And previously with this gentleman, we might see that we’ve treated his ankle and he still has an issue going on with it. The slight tightness in this ankle has his foot turning inward this way.

Okay, same thing. Even at this laying down assessment, you can see that the right shoulder is a little closer to the ear than the left shoulder. Okay? Thank you.
