Posture therapy

Introduction - Materials and methods
Results - Conclusions
The emotional and mental state, together with the body, forms a whole – the human organism – that can become unbalanced at any moment by modifying the state of just one of the components. Posture therapy is a therapeutic method which uses body posture and attitude, alternative muscle contraction and relaxation together with correct breathing, leading to faster healing or improvement of various conditions or traumas of the locomotive apparatus.

 The resulta of the study are shown in graph form.
 At the subjective parameters. We may notice that 65% at first and after 87% subjects have recognized a qualitative and quantitative improvement of sleep, even though this thing has not been noticed during the first days.

 We expected the desire to train to have a raising curve because, by these exercices, the subject obtains a relaxation state that allows for the faster removal of the trainig tiredness.
 When traumas were involved, the subject was exercising within the limits of his physical possibilities, but, at the end of the session, during the second relaxation period, he was performing the final relaxation technique. 
 When measuring the amplitude of the spine, the following results were obtained. Spine amplitude was the most spectacular parameter that changed, most of the times (85% of cases) in the interval between the beginning and the end of the session.
 The set of exercices that has been applied involved also exercising the abdominal muscles, fact that generated in      85% cases a change in lung elasticity with 2-4 cm.
 In the cases accompanied by articular pains, the improvement of the pain simptom was possible because the change in the whole body position has been tried, that, from a biomechanical point of view, has also changed the articulary pressures or the way in which articulary movement was performed.
 The change in the psychic tonus was a consequence of the already mentioned changes: pain reduction, obtaining a more correct position of the body, good movement amplitude, naturalness and harmony in movements.
 The least influenced were apetite and weight – probably the relatively short duration of the program did not allow for obvious changes.

We think that the key moments in the success of the experiment were:
  • relearning and adopting a correct body position in accordance with the principles of biomechanics; the achievement of this objective was made easy through looking and  self-correcting in the mirror;
  • after each series of exercices the introduction of a set of breathing exercices;
  • one-to-one working with the participants to the experiment;
  • mentalizing of the positions together with self-analysis of the positions;
  • obtaining a relaxation before the beginning of the exercices;
  • The continuous induction of an optimistic, calm, relaxed state;
  • appeal to the imaginative resources of the subjects.
By this experiment I wanted to identify simple and reproductible methods to be used in the recovery or the improvement of the pain symptomatology at sportsmen. The disadvantage of the method is that it implies knowledge of psychology, mainly NLP, in order to perform the final relaxation technique and, mostly, to strengthen the obtained states.  

Obtaining a reliable method by combining less used techniques
The importance of obtaining a relaxation state, even in the case of traumas, in order to obtain a faster recovery
Change of the general attitude and the approach o problems by changing the position of the body
Correction of certain physical defficiencies (small and medium) by methods that are less trauma-inductive for the subject
The sportsmen participating in tis experiment have received access to a technique that might be useful in the future, being possible to adapt it to different medical situations – and not only.
