Rieducazione del piede

Problematiche biomeccaniche e posturali statiche e dinamiche
  • Elena Martinelli,

The foot is physiologically flat until the age of 4 before gradually transforming into a helicoidal structure with variable step; at the age of 5-6 the vertebral curves stabilize and this happens thanks to the extero-proprioceptive maturation of the foot. Having reached the age of 8-9, many children display defects, amongst the most common: pronation of the rearfoot, flat feet and high-arched feet. This monograph describes the biomechanical and psychomotor study at the basis of static and dynamic distortions in posture and the problems caused by the foot's contact and impact with the ground. It illustrates the contribution of Applied Human Movement Sciences for obtaining fundamental and long-term results in terms of prevention, postural rebalancing and re-education during the developmental, adult and elderly stages of life.
