Participant stands with feet shoulder width apart and toes parallel then closes eyes and nods head back and forth twice bringing head back to middle. Keep eyes closed for ten seconds while observer checks shoulder and hip levels.
Observer stands facing participant and lightly places index fingers on top of participant’s shoulders, noting which shoulder is higher. Then place index fingers on top of participant’s hips and not which hip is higher.


Important: If one of these areas is positive, there is a high likelihood that a subluxation may exist but can only be confirmed with a proper chiropractic exam.
