How to Correct Vertigo and Unbalance

Vertigo is not necessarily a consequence of a standing position unbalance. Vertigo can occur in bed or in a sitting position. It results from a wrong perception of the surrounding space. Spatial references are lost during the crisis.

The first step is to detect the presence of an organic lesion. However, the majority of the cases of vertigo don't show any significant evidence of organic lesions. The majority of these functional cases are part of the Postural Deficiency Syndrome (PDS) described by Martins da Cunha in 1979. Treatment is very easy and precise for a specialist trained in the proprioception techniques. All that is needed is to treat the PDS, no drugs are needed, only proprioceptive correction.

Results are obtained in a few minutes.

Dyslexia: Disease or Symptom?

Common Dyslexia is part of a proprioception dysfunction where cognitive functions are mostly affected. It is never the only symptom.

Whenever we use a proprioceptive treatment, associated symptoms also disappear. Associated symptoms usually disappear earlier than dyslexia itself. The cognitive functions need some time of maturation to normalize - a short period of time though - and most people can increase their reading performances in a few weeks.

Everything depends on the compliance of the proprioceptive treatment and on the severity of the case as well. The prescription must be correct and compliance overviewed. What is interesting in this new method is that dyslexics only need to come back to the doctor's office once a year and be monitored 4 months after the first visit.
