Core Essentials, we use Posturology as part of our assessment
Posturology is relatively new to Canada, with only a limited
number of trained practitioners. It is used more widely in
France and Italy where many studies have been conducted. We
learned our posturology assessment techniques from Dr. Bernard
Bricot (one of the top acupuncturists and orthopedic surgeons
in Europe), and Dr. Michel Joubert, a top podiatrist and Level
IV C.H.E.K. practitioner from Trois Riviere, Quebec.
Posturology allows us to assess the sometimes out-of-tune
receptors of the body that have a profound influence on our
tonic postural system. Generally the stronger you’re
sensory and propreoceptive system is, the more awareness you
have of your overall posture.
We look at the eyes, feet, jaw, and other skin and muscle
receptors that influence posture.
What we find is that many injuries are the result of specific
receptors that are not functioning properly. Once these out-of-tune
receptors are reprogrammed, postural correction is made and
injuries are treated and prevented. Many times the postural
reprogramming is done through eye exercises, jaw or breathing
exercises and postural insoles (not the same as orthotics).
If orthotics are needed, we send our clients to Dr. Michel
Posturology has amazing results not just for highly trained
athletes, but for individuals of all ages. We combine our
posturology assessment results with our C.H.E.K. assessment
and put them all together in a corrective exercise program
made especially for you.
