Postural Torsion Syndrome Algorithm (ptsa) as a predictor of musculoskeletal health.

Currently in the United States healthcare model, treatment occurs after the patient becomes symptomatic. Waiting until we recognize the problem by patient complaints limits our capacity for quality physical and mental health. With this model, the US spends more on healthcare per capita than every other nation. In Physical Therapy, developing proper preventive healthcare will require screening tools effective in identifying predictors of pain and injury. Our current tools render themselves ineffective, because they only measure function, which is too variable for accurate assessment [1]. Nevertheless, these inadequate tools are the standard practice for determining a need for skilled interventions and insurance coverage.
