Posturology examines the regulatory processes for stabilising the body in its environment while standing or moving.

Postural sensors

As an illustration, the podal sensors function like two pans of a scale.

Past a certain imbalance threshold in the podal sensors (asynchronism), the muscle tone becomes asymmetrical.

All tonic asymmetry induces a reduction in performance and the risk of injury.

Role of posturology in sport

The posturologist informs the trainer and the fitness coach about the implications of postural imbalance for specific techniques and athletic techniques.

The postural assessment provides the trainer and fitness coach with information on :

The posturologist implements a posture treatment strategy relating to the sensor(s) responsible for the tonic imbalance, combined with the appropriate rehabilitation.
