Posturology is a specific area of theoretical and clinical physiology applicable in numerous fields of medicine and related disciplines and aims at studying the standing position and related dysfunctions. This functional medical approach offers a range of powerful multiprofessional diagnostic and therapeutic tools based on position-related neurophysiology and human movement in the management of a large number of pathologies. As posturologists, we frequently encounter disorders of the standing position due to one or several manducatory dysfunctions...

Posture is defined as the position of the body at a given point in time. Incorrect relationship among different parts of body produces an higher tension on retaining structure that causes postural problems. Posturology is fundamental to recognize the relationship between postural attitude and some pathological conditions otherwise difficult to recognize. We can use force platform, baropodometric or dynamometric platform to analyze tonic postural system and to evaluate sensitive receptors. The main injuries in athletes are caused by cumulative trauma...

This article details a case report of a subject chosen from among patients treated in the author's clinic in the Posturology and Gnathology Section of the University Milano-Bicocca.It shows how the indispensable clinical analysis of the stomatognathic system and the connections between posture can be supported by instrumental analysis, such as the computerized occlusal analysis system and the force platform, to diagnose and treat dysfunctional patients.

The diagnosis and the therapy of the cases of low back pain in absence of organic spinal column diseases, frequently referred by vdt/pc users in connection with their work activities are frequently unsatisfactory both for the Occupational Doctors and for the patients. The specialized posturological evaluation, composed by a specific clinical examination and by specific instrumental exams, seems to be a valid instrument for a more effective management of patients affected by such clinical cases. The treatments described in this research have eliminated or greatly reduced the pain in these patients, with an efficacy prolonged until at least a year; as it is demonstrated by the few relapses referred by the workers...

The posturologic visit is a not widely known medical method for the evaluation and the therapy of low back pain. We describe the clinical and instrumental method followed in our posturological clinical unit organized jointly by hospital and university and the clinical cases evaluated in two years. An individual diagnostic evaluation and a personal therapy allowed an almost generalized complete remission of the symptoms and a very low number of reactivation of low back pain after a follow up of one years.

The whole of trading enterprises with many average/big saling-centres forms what is today commonly known as Large Organized Distribution (LOD). The main risks regarding the people working in the LOD are: MM, repetitive motion of upper limbs, fixed postures, unfavourable microclimatic conditions and, moreover, the probability of labour accidents. In order to analyse the risks due to MM and false postures, we have used the ergonomic software "Classic Jack" distributed by EAI-UGS, which has been very helpful to find out the most dangerous labour operations (e...

In the last years, the word "posturology" has been used in complementary medicine to define the discipline studying the relation between posture and many pathologies, above all chronic pain. Posturology is more and more frequently recommended as a diagnostic-therapeutic system for treatment of chronic complaints, on the base of which different health caregivers (physicians and not) treat the same clinical problem, with very different methodological patterns and therapies. If it is true that many scientific papers highlight a relation between body posture and muscoloskeletal disorders; nevertheless on the base of scientific literature, it is not possible to demonstrate any scientific principle showing that the correction of small alterations of posture on the base of a stabilometric analysis can improve muscoloskeletal pain or other diseases...

Postoperative nausea and vomiting (PONV) is one of the most common postoperative complications. Aside from pharmacological interventions, other complementary healing modalities have been introduced to assist patients in decreasing PONV and improving postoperative outcomes. This study examined acupressure as a potentially holistic and safe complement to the more traditional approach of using drugs to prevent and/or relieve nausea and vomiting in the postoperative patient. Acupressure involves constant pressure (without puncture of the skin) on the Nei Guan acupuncture points through the use of a British product called Sea-Bands (Sea Band UK Ltd, Leics, England)...

The therapeutic activity of a single dose of 150 mg of tobramycin, parenteral administration, was studied in the prophylaxis of urinary tract infection (UTI) postoperative or postendoscopic. This study incorporated 85 patients of both sexes ranging in age from 18-91 years; 20 had had previous UTI. Duration of therapy ranged from 5 to 15 days and was determined by clinical response; 70 of 85 patients clinically observed achieved excellent results, 10 good and 5 moderate. In 5 cases persistent asymptomatic bacteriuria recurred, indicating incomplete eradication of the microorganism...
