Proprioception and Dyslexia

Proprioception is our sixth sense. It informs the brain about the body itself and the relationship between body and space. Proprioception is the first part, the afferent part, of the PROPRIOCEPTIVE SYSTEM. This is a complete neurological system that includes receiving and processing information brain centers, efferent neurological pathways and effector organs, a feedback mechanism that is associated.

Common Dyslexia is a consequence of a proprioceptive dysfunction. The good news is the body has the necessary know-how to normalize the proprioceptive dysfunction and improve reading ability as well as other associated symptoms. We are using ACTIVE PRISMS and other complementary treatments. Complementary treatments include specific motor coordination training developed by Martins Da Cunha, MD that was named Postural Reprogramming. The reason why some types of motor training can improve reading ability is that they can interfere with the regulation of the proprioceptive system. Reading our work, the authors of some motor coordination trainings will finally understand why their treatment increase, although slightly, reading ability... However, Active Prisms are the strongest component for dyslexia treatment and the results appear in a short period of time, even in severe cases.

Active prisms are not yoked prisms but prisms prescribed according to previous proprioceptive status evaluation by use of specific techniques. Each type of proprioceptive dysfunction requires a specific active prism.
