Postural Re-education in Low Back Pain

2014-08-27 03:26:20 | BioPortfolio


The Global Postural Re-Education is a global approach for the treatment of musculoskeletal disease. Using specific progressive posture for stretching particular shortened chain muscle the method wants to equilibrate the never-ending war between static and dynamic muscles by guiding the patient in a particular breathing pattern to maintain a correct posture and feeling it.


In some countries there is a physical therapy method called "Global Posture Reeducation" (GPR), which was developed by Philippe Emmanuel Souchard based on 20 years of clinical experience.The method consist to balance the miofascial tension probably responsible for an articular overloading. The method stretches the shortened antigravity muscles that are inside a different static muscles chains. GPR is a global approach that search the biomechanics cause in the near areas, and involves actively the patient in the postural and gestural changes.
