Posture in patients with peripheral vestibular syndrome: exploratory study

Objectives: To evaluate corporal posture in patients with peripheral vestibular dysfunction, out of crisis. To verify the presence of pain in the muscular system, in cephalic and cervical segments and shoulders. Material and Method: Exploratory study using the modified Kendall protocol of posture evaluation. Eighty-two patients (26 men and 56 women) aged 9 to 84 […]

Analisi della postura nella scoliosi mediante craniocorpografia digitale

L’ equilibrio dell’ uomo e’ una funzione complessa che consente la stabilizzazione delle immagini sulla retina durante il movimento della testa e/o del corpo nello spazio (coordinazione oculomotoria) e l’ opposi-zione alla forza di gravita’ realizzando quindi sia la stazione eretta (coordinazione d’equilibrio statico) sia il movimento nell’ ambiente (coordinazione d’equilibrio dinamico). Contemporaneamente alla coordinazione […]

Stabilometry in patients with ménière’s disease

Objective: to analyze the oscillatory velocity of the pressure center (COP) of the body in different sensorial contexts in patients with Ménière’s Disease. Methods: 15 subjects, 02 males and 13 females, aged 28-71 years, who presented defined diagnostic of Ménière’s Disease were submitted to evaluation of the modified clinical test of sensorial integration (mCTSIB) by […]

The influence of cerebellar lesions on the otolith postural reflexes-experimental study

Between main postural reflexes, there are tonic labyrinth reflexes generated in otolith system as a results of earth gravity. The neck extensors action is a result of these reflexes and the medullar structures are their centers. It is known that the rigidity of decerebrated animals is caused by the fastigial nucleus damage and that this […]

Neck proprioception influence on vibration induced postural sway

Rationale: Several reports have shown that the direction of the postural responses induced by vestibular stimulation is affected by the neck and torso position. The aim of the study was to investigate whether the postural responses to vibratory proprioceptive stimulation of the calf muscles are affected by the head position and thus by proprioceptive and […]

Correlation between dental occlusion and posture evaluated by means of tetra-ataxiometry: implication in the treatment of vertig

Balance function aims to achieve a stable relationship between oneself and the sorrounding world, the environment. The result is spatial stabilization, which means that, when perceiving this sorrounding, one has the impression that it is stable. During each movement of the body and/or of the head the visual otrientation of space has to be stabilized. […]

The vestibular and non vestibular components of the caloric vestibular stimulus – a positron emission tomography study

There are different stimulation methods for investigation of the vestibular system. In addition to optokinetic, galvanic and neck vibration tests the most wide-spread is the caloric stimulation. These listed methods cause not only vestibular but other different effects on the central nervous system (CNS) (acustic, tactile and nociceptive). The authors using positron emission tomograhy (PET) […]

Vestibular evoked myogenic potentials in definite multiple sclerosis

Patients with definite multiple sclerosis frequently suffer from vestibular disorders due to a vestibulo-oculomotor and vestibulospinal systems involvement. The vestibulospinal reflexes in these subjects can be well investigated through the vestibular evoked myogenic potentials recording. These potentials, evoked by the acoustic stimulation of the saccular macula and mediated by vestibulocollic reflex pathway, are recorded using […]

Stabilization of the head position in pitch plane: study of an imbalanced population during a multi-segment posturography examin

PURPOSE: to evaluate head stabilization in pitch plane in patients with different kinds of imbalance, when standing over firm and movable surfaces. MATERIAL: STATITEST multi-segments platform for recording and computing the postural adjustments at different body levels, detected by two captors placed on the head and hip, in four situations – eyes open and closed […]

Proprioceptive dysfunctions leading to vertigo

Vertigo is especially for older Patients an incapacitating and socially isolating disease. They seem to be drunk during the daytime and do not dare to go out. The treatment of the proprioceptive disorders are easily done manually and lead to lasting cure. Most important are the input cicuits of the so called small neck muscles […]
