Physical Parameters Causing C Posture and How to Diagnose Them:
The C-posture is described as an excessive roundness in your upper back and can be caused by the following:
- Limited thoracic spine extension.
- Upper Crossed Syndrome - muscle imbalances including tight pecs, lats, upper traps, and levator scap and weakness in the mid-scapular muscles, serratus anterior, lower traps, and deep neck flexors.
- Scapular instability.
- Instability in the core muscles causing poor posture and the slouched forward position at address.
- Lack of proper instruction - not understanding the correct setup and posture.
- Lack of pelvic tilt causing the upper body to bend to address the ball.
- Clubs that are too short.
- Grip that is too much in the fingers of both hands.
