Posturology is a practice that is relatively new in North America. It has been practiced in France for many years. The basis of the practice is that our eyes, feet, jaw, and skin all play a role in the positioning of the body. Any imbalances can cause pain, muscular stiffness, and decreased movement efficiency. By correcting these imbalances, the pain that results can be eliminated.
Diane, who suffers from Parkinson’s disease, came to see me regarding the pain in her feet that has resulted from her condition. After conducting a postural assessment, I determined that there were several postural imbalances that if corrected could lessen or eliminate her pain.
Diane left my office in tears, shocked by the decrease in pain that occurred in just one session. A tearful phone call came the following morning, and a dancing Diane came into my office two days later.
Generally, my patients have sought help from multiple doctors without seeing any results. They have wasted their time and money on techniques and prescriptions that do not seem to help.
I treated Diane using eye exercises, postural insoles, and addressing her pathological scar and was able to decrease her pain by over 50%. I know that posturology is effective in eliminating pain and I know that we can help many people.
