Posturology is the medical science wich studies the consequence on the proprioceptive system linked to wrong systematic body position.

This dysfunction can affect all parts of the human body and a differential diagnosis must be done from organic lesions, because symptoms are often quite similar.

Many of proprioceptive dysfunctions symptoms are taken by organic diseases and their classical treatment becomes a disaster because many doctors are ignoring this kind of dysfunctions.
This wide group, of symptoms was described in 1979 by H.Martins da Cunha as Postural Defficiency Syndroma (PDS). The treatment of this syndroma is very well established and results are quickly obtained.This treatment doesn't require drugs prescription or invasive methods.

Proprioceptive dysfunctions ,the ABC

Being the proprioceptive system a global system covering the human body in its totality ,it is easy to understand the symptoms having origin in its disturbances must be linked with the functions of the body segments they are disturbing.
In summary we can identify the following groups of symptoms:
1-Cognitive symptoms
Dyslexia, Disortography, disgraphy, dislalia,attention deficit,hiperactivity.
2-Balance Symptoms
3-Pain symptoms
Migraine, Headhach, Cervicalgias,Chest pain,brachialgias,rachialgias,fetsoles pain,limbspain.
4-Egocentric localization deficit
Frequent falls down,involontary cheek biting,carparking difficulties,agorofobia,claustrofobia,spatial orientation difficulties.
5-Neurovascular symptoms
Cold but sweated hands,face paleness,Reynaud Syndroma.
One of these symptoms can be dominant in a patient and another symptom can take dominance in another patient.This could arise to the illusion they are suffering from different kinds of disease. But they are not,the treatment is similar.
