Intrinsic Foot Muscles instead of Rigid Orthotics? Peter W.B.Oomens, Pedorthics vol.46, issue 7, January/February 2014

Malocclusie en topsport. In 2012 verscheen dit interessante artikel. Posturologie en osteopathie zijn nauw gerelateerd en kunnen, in overleg, aanvullend worden toegepast en elkaar zodanig versterken: “Er is steeds meer wetenschappelijk bewijs dat aantoont dat het gebit en de stand van de kaken de oorzaak kunnen zijn van problemen elders in het lichaam. En in dit kader is een samenwerking met de tandarts voor iedere osteopaat interessant”, zegt Frédéric Van Burm.

The relationship between the stomatognathic system and body posture, Antonino Cuccia, Carola Caradonna, doi: 10.1590/S1807-59322009000100011, Cuccia A, Caradonna C. The relationship between the stomatognathic system and body posture. Clinics. 2009;64(1):61-6.

In recent years, many researchers have investigated the various factors that can influence body posture: mood states, anxiety, head and neck positions, oral functions (respiration, swallowing), oculomotor and visual systems, and the inner ear. Recent studies indicate a role for trigeminal afferents on body posture, but this has not yet been demonstrated conclusively. The present study aims to review the papers that have shown a relationship between the stomatognathic system and body posture. These studies suggest that tension in the stomatognathic system can contribute to impaired neural control of posture. Numerous anatomical connections between the stomatognathic system’s proprioceptive inputs and nervous structures are implicated in posture (cerebellum, vestibular and oculomotor nuclei, superior colliculus).

Is there a role of visual cortex in spatial hearing? Eur J Neurosci. 2004 Dec;20(11):3148-56. Zimmer U1Lewald JErb MGrodd WKarnath HO.  Abstract:

The integration of auditory and visual spatial information is an important prerequisite for accurate orientation in the environment. However, while visual spatial information is based on retinal coordinates, the auditory system receives information on sound location in relation to the head. Thus, any deviation of the eyes from a central position results in a divergence between the retinal visual and the head-centred auditory coordinates. It has been suggested that this divergence is compensated for by a neural coordinate transformation, using a signal of eye-in-head position. Using functional magnetic resonance imaging, we investigated which cortical areas of the human brain participate in such auditory-visual coordinate transformations. Sounds were produced with different interaural level differences, leading to left, right or central intracranial percepts, while subjects directed their gaze to visual targets presented to the left, to the right or straight ahead. When gaze was to the left or right, we found the primary visual cortex (V1/V2) activated in both hemispheres. The occipital activation did not occur with sound lateralization per se, but was found exclusively in combination with eccentric eye positions. This result suggests a relation of neural processing in the visual cortex and the transformation of auditory spatial coordinates responsible for maintaining the perceptual alignment of audition and vision with changes in gaze direction.

THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN THE SIGHT AND THE HUMAN POSTURE By Peter W.B. Oomens (posturologist)

Summary: In this article a relationship between sight and postural position is described. It is explained that the way of standing (and sitting) influences the function of the motor eye muscles. Furthermore a relationship is described between the rotation around the body axis and the dominance of one of the eyes. A change of posture, according to the podopostural system, instantaneously results in a reproducible, detectable and measurable posture improvement. Interestingly, after such a change, convergence of the eyes becomes often easier. Subjectively as well as objectively.
