Dyslexia and associated symptoms

What is new is the confirmation that common DYSLEXIA is not a disease but just one of the PDS's symptoms.

The main benefit is that we can treat Dyslexia by treating the proprioceptive dysfunction which produces all PDS symptoms, including Dyslexia. Many kinds of pain and unbalance don't need drugs to be treated but only the techniques to correct proprioceptive system dysfunctions. These techniques are neither iatrogenic nor invasive. Our experience dates back to 1977 and we have treated more than 30 thousand patients with success. This represents a very long background and a very high number of patients treated.

The classical treatment for Dyslexia has a low percentage of good results because its aim is to reduce the symptom but not to eliminate the origin of the disease. The same goes for some kinds of pain that are only due to muscle contracture arising from wrong brain proprioceptive information. Everytime the brain is informed the muscles are too relaxed, it sends the neurological output to normalize their tonus. But if this information is wrong - as in the case of a proprioceptive dysfunction - the brain sends a similar neurological output, the muscle contracts and reaches the pain level. This is very common and we estimate, according to our experience, it affects more than 10 per cent of the adult population in industrialized countries. Many muscle pains are found not to have an evident organic origin.

The body's balance system is also affected by wrong proprioceptive information. The brain doesn't know where the body segments and space are exactly located and it keeps sending wrong neurological outputs which lead to unbalance.

In case of dyslexia, what is affected are the brain centres that locate exactly the components of the written message and also the position of the eyes relative to each part of the text. Whenever a "DE" is seen as a "ED" or a "p" is seen as a "q" or the line above is seen as the line below, the text stops making sense and people can't read . However, when we correct this wrong perception through the correction of the proprioceptive system, reading becomes possible and easy.

In case of proprioceptive dysfunctions, including dyslexia, Brain Mapping (computerized electroencephalography) shows excessive brain cortical absolut power in the low-frequency waves. When we correct this system using our methods, these excessive brain cortical levels become normal. In case of pain or unbalance, this is enough to make those symptoms disappear; in case of cognitive dysfunctions, we have the basis to continue the treatment by cognitive training. However,we emphasize that, in many cases of dyslexia, cognitive training is not necessary.
