Modern manual therapy techniques focus on asymmetry in anatomy & mobility and lateralization. Wylick HV et al recommend a 3 Minuit test battery by 8 tests. How ever following are 10 tests to know the asymmetry in spine:

1. Dominant eye
2. Phoria of eye
3. Scooping
4. Step forward
5. Finger crossing
6. Step on platform
7. Axis rotation
8. Tailor’s position
