Posturology is an expertise that studies and evaluates posture, which is the automatic and unconscious motor act that allows to adopt the standing position, to stabilize this position in a static and dynamic way in space and in relation to the environment.
It is through balance management and its dysfunctions that maintaining the standing position is a real challenge on the neurophysiological level. We all have a system for regulating our posture and through which we can maintain our standing position, orient ourselves in space and adjust all our movements. This system constantly works to keep us in an ideal position, with minimal energy demand. A posture imbalance therefore leads to a significant energy demand and systematically generates asymmetrical muscle contractions that are often painful.
The posturologist objective will be among other things to find the causes of these imbalances and to make the corrections by working with the postural tone regulation system. This system uses proprioceptive and exteroceptive information transmitted by a significant number of sensors located on the body. The latter inform the brain about its environment and allow it to adapt muscle work so that standing and walking are optimal. In this complex system, the eyes, inner ear, spine, and feet play a major role in the postural tone regulation.
At the end of this training, you will be able to practice postural assessments and accompany your clients suffering from problems such as balance disorders, back pain, torticollis, minor scoliosis, disorders related to the inner ear, head injuries, etc.
