BIO-POSTURAL ANALYSIS

Posturology is the science which, based on the latest neurophysiological findings, studies the human balance and the strategies used to maintain

it in all circumstances.

Posture is the position that the different parts of the body automatically and unconsciously take in space.

The adjustment of posture is important for maintaining balance: a state in which all the forces acting on the body are balanced thanks to changes in muscle tone.

These variations cause the human body to oscillate constantly around the axis of the ankles, but it is necessary to keep these oscillations within

a certain range of values in order to define them as physiological.

Normally we think of balance and posture as unrelated elements. In particular, the disorders of the former are mainly related to labyrinthine diseases and therefore to otolaryngological competence, whereas the disorders of the latter are at the expense of the musculoskeletal system

and therefore of orthopaedic interest. However, this is only a trivialisation that is now considered inappropriate and insufficient for solving clinical problems. In fact, we can define posture - the set of interrelationships of the different segments of the body in space - and balance - the maintenance of posture - as a relationship between the body and its environment.

The affections that can affect the body in space are different: the position of the head, the more or less correct functioning of the arctic-temporal action - mandibular (ATM), swallowing, the correct functioning of the oculus muscles - motors, the various joints, muscle tone, the vestibular system, the breech support, etc.

The human body uses sensory control systems that constantly interact with the central nervous system (CNS).

to maintain postural balance and everything else outside of consciousness.

DIGITALISED SPINE ANALYSIS (SPINOMETRY)

For the purpose of correct postural assessment, we use sophisticated computerised clinical equipment that allows us to obtain a precise analysis of the spine and any pelvic imbalances (rotations, twists, tilt).
In addition, we can objectively measure changes in balance using a sophisticated digitised stabiliser.

COMPUTED STABILITY METRIC

The latter allows us to assess postural changes both with the eyes open and with the eyes closed, and to take into account possible occlusal, oculomotor and occlusal interference on the balance.

In fact, in recent years, the relationship between the stomatognatic system and postural regulation has become increasingly important in odontostomatognatic problems.

DYNAMIC BAROPODOMETRIC STUDY

The analysis of the static support (static analysis) allows a meticulous study of the zones of overloading and the possible presence of dysfunctions of the closure.
