Animation compares correct posture with poor posture, which, if ignored, can lead to Anterior Shoulder Syndrome. The proper alignment of anatomical landmarks is shown first. The animation then highlights the problem areas that can result from poor posture, including a forward head, dowager hump, and rounded shoulders, along with neck and back pain. This animation was adapted from an educational brochure prepared for a chiropractor to use with her patients.
