Pain from standing, walking and running may extend from the feet to the back through all the joints (ankles, knees, hips).
The pain in the lower limbs therefore has an impact on the rest of the body which, unable to compensate, will begin to decompensate.
This is where posturology takes place, which aims to take into account the body as a whole, to study people’s posture, balance and adaptation to the environment.
The fine postural system, in charge of regulating our balance and keeping us standing, captures any variation of the body with the environment according to the received stimuli and incorporates balance orthostatics with exosensors (eyes, jaw, feet, etc.) and endosensors (muscles, spines, etc.).
When the postural system is modified, problems such as pain in some muscles, dizziness, headache, lumbago, etc. appear. Therefore, diseases of the system postural are not due to an injury, but to the logical structure of a fine control system unstable.
The objective of the posturologist-podiatrist, through a rigorous clinical examination, is to apply small proprioceptive elements that will allow to re-educate the posture of the patients and thus improve their quality of life.
Growth pathologies concern children during the growth period, generally between 7 and 15 years.
In Sever’s disease, the child will complain of severe pain in the heel (bone of the calcaneum).
In Osgood-Schlatter disease, the pain is localized to the knee.
And in Köhler-Mouchet disease, the child will complain of a strong pain towards the bone navicular.
It is essential to assess the associated static disorders (calcaneous valgus, genu valgum, etc.) in order to to reduce muscle tension that causes pain.
