Terms that Describe Posture or Position
This is a list of terms used to describe posture and position by ergonomists and those in the medical field. It may help in understanding what your therapist or doctor is talking about. As well, it can also help YOU describe what you see at home and in the workplace.
These are terms you'll seen and hear everyday if you're around an Occupational or Physical Therapist - or an Ergonomist.
