S-POSTURE (LUMBAR HYPERLORDOSIS)
The following limitations are usually at the origin of this swing characteristic.
Often, S-Posture is caused and/or fed by an unhealthy posture. An unfavourable posture is a fertile ground for musculoskeletal conditions such as Lower Crossed Syndrome, which is a well known cause of S-Posture.
Some of the factors causing or feeding S-Posture are poor posture, sedentary lifestyle, prolonged or repetitive activities causing or feeding dysfunctional movement patterns, reduced hip mobility, core and/or gluts weakness. Other possible causes for S-Posture are Bilateral Hip Extension and Thorax Spine Extension/Rotation Mobility Dysfunction, Lumbar Spine Flexion Mobility Dysfunction, Thorax Extension and Lumbar Spine Flexion Stability and Motor Control Dysfunction.
Positive Tests: “Pelvic Tilt”, “Bridge w/ Leg Extension”, FABER and Modified Thomas Test, Lumbar Locked Extension/Rotation, Prone Rocking, Flexion and Extension Rolling Patterns (excessive lumbar extension to compensate for a reduced thorax extension and excessive hip flexion to compensate for a reduced lumbar flexion).
