, passive tension is caused by postural adaptation or scarring. 1 As a consequence, ROM abnormalities may create muscle imbalances. 4 This can lead to the disruption of force couples around joints. A force couple is defined as equal and parallel forces that act in opposing directions to create rotation, 5
