Posture is defined as “the position of the body in space and the spatial relationship between the skeletal segments, the aim of which is to maintain balance, both in static and dynamic conditions, to which neurophysiological, biomechanical, psycho-emotional and relational factors contribute, also linked to the evolution of the species” (Carini, F.; Mazzola, M.; Fici, C.; Palmeri, S.; Messina, M.; Damiani, P.; Tomasello, G. Posture and posturology, anatomical and physiological profiles: Overview and current state of art. Acta Biomed. 2017, 88, 11–16)
The human body functions like a system that is constantly reacting to external and internal forces to maintain homeostasis. Our posture is a result of these forces. Our posture is the direct result of the integration external stimuli (gravity being the constant) with complex neurological networks that include visual, vestibular, proprioception, and exteroceptive inputs.
Once the afferent signals are analyzed, the are plugged into a feed forward system that include cortical, subcortical, and cerebellar activation that result in a neuromotor response that give us our posture.
In this webinar, we will discuss new technology to the U.S. that gives us a complete analysis of the posture of the spine, Spine 3D, and how it can be utilized in the chiropractic office.
