posture

the alignment and function of all components of the kinetic chain at any given moment

structural efficiency

the alignment of the musculoskeletal system that allows our center of gravity to be maintained over our base of support

functional efficiency

the ability of the neuromuscular system to monitor and manipulate movement during functional tasks using the least amount of stress on the kinetic chain

postural equilibrium

maintaining a state of balance in the alignment of the kinetic chain

neuromuscular efficiency

the ability of the nervous system to communicate effectively with the muscular system

functional strength

the ability of the neuromuscular system to contract eccentrically, isometrically, and concentrically in all three plans of motion

postural distortion patterns

predictable occurrences of muscle imbalances caused by altered movement patterns

systolic pressure

reflects the blood produced by the heart as it pumps blood to the body
