    Postural Distortions leading to chronic musculoskeletal pain is the basic tenant behind proprioceptive therapy. Current studies linking insoles to changes in postural permutations tend to validate (in my opinion) this basic tenant.

    The fact that proprioceptive insoles dramatically change postural alignments is evident when one reviews the changes in posture - pre vs post proprioceptive Tx. What is not so apparent to many healthcare providers, are the visceral changes that accompany the postural corrections.

    This is a strange thread Brian (btw, do you mean tenet rather than tenant?).

    From where I'm sitting the explanation is very simple:
    The foot is designed to conform and provide a stable platform for ambulation on all kinds of surfaces, but as we age some joints stiffen and others stop working altogether.
    This will affect stability in some subjects.

    Anything which cradles the plantar foot profile on the upper surface, and provides a flat under-surface to conform to the flat,hard surface which the study was undoubtedly carried out on, is bound to help overall stability in some subjects.

    Doesn't postural stability begin with spinal/pelvic stabilisation?.

    ^ Fix this first.


    But there joints are still stiff & immobile.

    Lets not gloss over a serious problem with a pat solution.

    It was an explanation, not a solution. The solution is orthotics, suitable footwear, and, depending on the level of instability or infirmity, a walker on wheels, or a frame.

    Where referring to poor joint health.

    You have totally overlooked the most important factor.

    How do your solutions go about getting to the core of the problem when the patient is constantly feeding (degrading/calcifying/inflaming) the joint problems?.

    If poor foot posture and bad mechanics are causing the postural problem, having a Kinematic effect on foot posture will effect the stability of the body as it will feel more stable.

    Yes!

    I rather like Dr. Richie's definition of Postural Control:


    No, it can be independent of the hemipelvis. Sicknote you're obviously a chiropractor and I'd bet dollars to donuts you dispense Foot Levelers (you are reciting their mantra are you not)? I feel the hemipelvis is not often the genesis of foot and/or balance problems.

    Podiatrists tend to look to the feet first and chiropractors to the spine.

    Everything we believe and do is as a result of the lens through which we view the world.

    I wish you would just post under your real name so that we could have an adult discussion as colleagues.
