    Postural assessment is an important part of the objective evaluation and ideal static postural alignments have been suggested (Kendall et al 2005). However it is important to assess both static and dynamic postures to ascertain the patient's functional movement and ability to self-correct a static habitus. An example of this is in a boxer, who enhances a hyper-kyphotic and rounded shoulder
