NeuEra - Postural Neurology
This training includes the theory behind posturology, neuromechanics of posture, mobility and posture tests, dental classes related to posture, rockers, balance tests (such as Romberg, Fukuda, unipodal, etc.), the relationship between systems, etc.
This course includes various theories from European posturology, American functional neurology, as well as new links highlighted by Nicolas Desjardins. You will learn to reproduce the methods with quality, in addition to having the documentation explaining the scientific foundations which justify the use of these protocols and their impacts on the body. These protocols will be easily integrated into your practice and will distinguish you from your competitors, from the end of your training worth 24 hours of content.
The areas of application are vast, such as injury prevention, rehabilitation, physical preparation, performance, healing support, etc.
Target audience: Massage therapist, physiotherapist, osteopath, chiropractor, ENT, occupational therapist, trainer, physiotherapist, posturologist, podiatrist, physical rehabilitation therapist, sports therapist, etc.)
What will you learn?
- The History of Posturology (its pioneers and where it comes from)
- The Origins of Posture (its role, evolution and definition)
- Introduction to Postural Neurology (the sensors which allow the fight against gravity, the effectors, the postural mechanisms, the phases of postural evolution of the baby, the classic approach in posturology, the benefits of good posture, the disadvantages of a bad one, postural reality, voluntary movement and postural tone, verticality strategy, postural maturation and postural adjustment)
- The Brain Above All – Bonus in Classical Neurology (the development of the brain, the emotional cerebellum, the origins of the nervous system, the wiring of the brain, the formation and strengthening of synapses, glial cells and myelination, neuroplasticity, the system somatic nervous system, ascending sensory pathways)
- The Neuro-Muscular System (muscle spindles and Golgi tendon organs, as well as the simple stretch reflex)
- The Neurology Behind Posture, Part 1 (gravity, static and dynamic postural programs, functional neuroanatomy of motor skills, postural quadrants of API, head weight and position, sensory pathways to the cerebellum, dorsal and ventral spinocerebellar pathway, as well as the cuneocerebellar pathway)
- Skin and Posture (exteroceptors, proprioceptors, interoceptors, the different types of cutaneous receptors, the anterolateral system, pain and body temperature pathways, tactile sensation and proprioception, discriminative touch, neuroplasticity and nociception)
- Feet and Posture (foot anatomy in brief, movements of the foot and ankle, positioning of the lower limbs, valgus, varus, hollow, flat and disharmonic feet, valgum and varum knees, history of plantar orthopedics, the plantar sole and its innervation, the sole and the control of human balance, the involvement of reflex control of the ankle, postural regulation and the foot muscles)
- The Inner Ear and Posture (the postural ear and its colleagues, galvanic vestibular stimulation, sensory reweighting and sensory summation)
- The Eyes and Posture (the anatomy of the eye, the targets of the optic nerve, the different visual cortices, the oculomotor muscles, the visual sensors, the visual system and posture, the retinal-geniculo-striatal pathway, the cortex extrastriate visual, focal and ambient vision, optokinetic stimulations, postural response, control of posture and vergence eye movements, vection phenomenon and stimulation parameters)
- Dental Classes and Posture (dental occlusion, the odonto-gnathic complex and posture, pain and dysfunction of the masticator system, cervico-cephalic posture and overall posture, the neurophysiological and biomechanical bases of interactions between the odonto-gnathic complex and posture, in addition to a discussion of causality or adaptivity)
- The Neurology Behind Posture, Part 2 (motor control, the extrapyramidal motor system and the pyramidal system, reflexes and balance, the peripheral and central nervous system, grid cells and their interaction with place cells of the hippocampus, neurology and posture during ambulation, the oculomotor, proprioceptive and postural deficiency syndrome, the general scheme and basic structures for postural control and the gait reflex, the role of the mesencephalic area for posture and locomotion, postural analysis of a functional lesion of the cerebellum, the inner ear or the pontomedullary reticular formation, cerebellar syndrome, as well as the abbreviated theory of the pontomedullary reticular formation and its 4 main functions)
- Static Postural Tests (use of the plumb line, the anterior, neutral and posterior scapular plane, the frontal plane and static disorders from the front, measuring the frontal scapulum, the pelvic girdle, the transverse scapulum, the ilium, the notion of ipsilaterality and postural contralaterality, as well as the brachial plexus compression test)
- Dynamic Postural Tests (measurement of cervical rotations, assessment of trunk rotation and spatial localization disorder with the hand-pencil test)
- Balance Tests (the quadratus lumborum and gluteus medius activation test, the unipedal stability test, the Romberg and modified Romberg tests, in addition to their theory, the Fukuda stomping test and its reliability , the antero-posterior counter-resistance balance test, as well as the functional reach test)
- Mobility Tests (the test of asymmetry of neck extension in the sagittal plane, antepulsion, abduction, internal and external rotation of the shoulder, in addition to mobility of the posterior chain)
