Your Body and Your Brain Communicate!

Your brain gets information about your environment through your feet and your eyes. The brain uses this information to control your muscle tone and your joint alignment!

If there are imbalances in your feet or your eyes, the information that is sent to your brain is weakened or inaccurate. Unfortunately, your brain depends on the incoming information regardless of its quality! As such, inaccurate information leads to poor muscle tone and poor joint alignment. This results in poor posture.

Overtime this poor posture can cause pain, injury, digestive issues, hormonal imbalance, poor performance, and/or a number of cognitive deficits.

The Posturepro Method

We know that posture stems from your brain’s interpretation of the information it receives. We also know that your body is constantly fighting the effects of gravity in order to keep you upright or moving.

Proper posture allows your body to work efficiently against gravity. On the contrary, poor posture leads to excess energy expenditure in attempt to stay upright. This can be exhausting!

In order to optimize your posture, The Posturepro Method observes several elements:

BRAIN-BODY

Muscles respond to the commands of the brain. A brain imbalance leads to a muscle imbalance.

FOOT SENSOR

The weight distribution of your feet changes knee and hip mechanics.

EYE SENSOR

The eye muscles tell your brain where your body is in space.

TMJ

Recent studies have show that the position of the jaw affects our posture.

THE THREE PILLARS

To get started, you need to understand how the nervous system influences your posture and your movements. Here’s the breakdown:

1.SENSORY INPUT

Everything you see and feel is captured through sensors of the body. Your eyes and the mechanoreceptors in your feet are important sensors. They are specialized receptors that send messages to the processing centers of your brain. This phase is known as “sensory input.”

2.INTEGRATION PHASE

Your brain then identifies the nature of the message and decides the best course of action. This is the “integration” phase.

3.MOTOR OUTPUT

The integrated signal becomes a command that is sent to your muscles for execution. This final phase is known as “motor output”.

Your Feet are the First Step!

Often the feet are forgotten in the majority of rehabilitation and/or conditioning programs.

However, studies demonstrate that the skin of our feet respond to frequency and texture. This stimulus contributes to our mobility and stability.

The feet are the first element evaluated in the Posturepro method.

This study published in the journal Neuroscience Letters noted measurable postural sway induced by stimulation of the feet’s receptors.

This study published in the Journal of Physiology found that stimulation of certain muscle tendons of the lower limb caused forward or backward body sway.

This study published in the journal Experimental Brain Research found that asymmetric foot position influenced the postural dynamics of the lower body.

Your Eyes -a Window to the Brain!

Our vision contributes 85% of our total knowledge, and our eyes telegraph the position of our head on our shoulders.
Furthermore, the muscles of the eyes move more than 100, 000 times a day. They do so in order to scan your surroundings or focus on a target.

An imbalance in these muscles can cause conditions like ADHD, poor body awareness, lower back pain, and poor posture.

The eyes are the second element assessed in the Posturepro Method.

This study published in the Journal of Physiology confirmed that vision influenced the speed and size of postural sway when standing still.

This study published in the Journal of Neuroscience noted that sensory feedback from the eyes is crucial for optimal head posture.

This study published in the journal Brain found that postural instability increased when visual acuity decreased.

This study published in the journal Neuroscience Letters observed improved postural control and stability in elderly subjects after eye exercises.

Your Jaw Says a lot!

Your jaw is involved in many functions. Some of these functions include nasal breathing, chewing, suction, swallowing and phonation. The development of the jaw and its related functions play a role in your physiological health.

The alignment of the jaw and teeth can have a direct impact on your posture. This is because the upper and lower segments of the jaw connect to your anterior and posterior muscular chains. The jaw is the third element evaluated in the Posturepro method.

This study found that the treatment of the jaw muscles restores the vertical alignment of the head in patients with TMJ disorders.

This study published in the journal Motor Control observed decreased postural stability on an unstable surface in subjects with dental occlusion imbalances.

This study published in the journal PLOS ONE found that the position of the lower jaw bone affected the running pattern symmetry of recreational joggers.
