Zink Compensatory Pattern Assessment is an evaluative method in osteopathic medicine, used to discern the body’s compensatory patterns of movement. Named after its founder, Dr. Gary Zink, this approach identifies asymmetries in biomechanical function that reveal the body’s adaptive responses to stressors.

The assessment involves a physical examination of the patient’s musculoskeletal system; focusing on joint mobility and soft tissue characteristics. It reveals predominant patterns referred to as ‘common compensatory pattern’ (CCP) or ‘uncommon compensatory pattern’ (UCCP). CCPs are more frequent and present as a predictable arrangement of asymmetrical findings across multiple anatomical regions, while UCCPs are less predictable and less frequently observed.

This diagnostic technique underscores the holistic view of osteopathy, emphasizing interconnectedness within the human body and acknowledging that alterations in one area can influence distant structures. The validity and reliability of Zink Compensatory Pattern Assessment remain topics of ongoing research within osteopathic medical communities.
