About the Video

This presentation will introduce a new type of assessment and treatment called posturology. The aim of posturology is to provide a treatment
no longer based on the symptoms (pains) but on the causes by reprogramming the out-of-tune sensors, abnormal information signals it
receives from peripheral sensors: feet, eyes, jaw, skin. The latest neurological research has shown that the control of the body’s spatial equilibrium
does not depend exclusively on the internal ear, as was believed for a long time, but also on other sensors of the system, of which the
eye and feet are the most important. In this presentation you will learn how to analyze the postural system, identify those elements that are
out-of-tune, and correct and reprogram the system as a whole. This is especially important in any weight-training injury since neurological
programming will help heal any injury and prevent it happening in the first place, especially when squatting where balance on the feet is paramount.
An excellent evaluation and treatment tool to use for any chronic weight-training injury where nothing else has worked.
