Posture is the adaptation of each individual to the physical and mental environment. It constitutes the way of each of us to react to the force of gravity and to interact with the surrounding environment. For these reasons, everyone’s posture is different from that of any other individual.
The objective is therefore to re-educate the patient’s musculoskeletal system, not only aimed at greater mobility, but aimed at reprogramming the muscular schemes that act against the force of gravity and that, through our nervous system central, we control on an involuntary level.
The Mezieres Method, also known as Morphological or Postural Rehabilitation, is a physiotherapy technique for individual rehabilitation. According to this method, the shortening of the posterior muscles of the body and their consequent rigidity are the main cause of what are commonly referred to as postural asymmetries (kyphosis, scoliosis and hyper lordosis).
The Method takes its name from the physiotherapist, Francoise Mézières, who first proposed a series of observations and related conclusions in contrast with certain principles commonly adopted in medical gymnastics.
Our therapists specialized in the Mezieres method will follow you in order to restore length and elasticity to the muscles concerned, thus promising the functional recovery of the body in space. The correct position of the body in space derives in fact from the correct muscle tone and the elasticity of the connective bands, which delimit the muscular and organic spaces.
Often the cause of the disorders, for which one turns to mezierist physiotherapists, originates from what is called “A Priori Antalgic Reflex”, that is, before feeling pain, the body defends itself with a painless position, which soon or later, it will cause pain or functional alterations elsewhere.
The therapy is organized in a cycle of individual treatments of a weekly session, diversified according to needs and personal characteristics. Later, group sessions can be used, which offer practitioners the cognitive tools to continue the work set by the physiotherapist on their own.
