Maybe...โฃ

One hip is higher than the otherโฃ

Your spine has a curve in itโฃ

Your neck is straightโฃ

Your pelvis is tilted (forward or back)โฃ

Your knees track inwardโฃ

You have high or low archesโฃ

You have scoliosisโฃ

One leg is longer than the other โฃ

Your head is forward (โ€œtext neckโ€) โฃ

โฃ

Or dysfunction? โฃ

Are you able to perform day to day activities? Do you have pain when exercising or playing sports? โฃ

Can you sleep well at night? โฃ

When it comes to vehicles and machines, alignment certainly matters. But unlike a car, our bodies have the ability to adapt, and are far more complex than any piece of machinery. โฃ
