Changing global postural alignment, via programming the cerebellum, is done in stages (incrementally). Otherwise unpleasant, untowards side effects can occur which might delay or subterfuge the proprioceptive therapy.
Series I Insoles
After running a series of computerized postural analyses, the patient was fitted with her first pair of proprioceptive insoles. Note the immediate (automatic) improvement in the patient's sagittal plane alignment.
For approximately four months the patient reported a continuous improvement (attenuation) in her musculoskeletal pain. Then, abruptly, no further improvement was reported.
This is a key indicator that the signal to the cerebellum requires recalibration.
The patient's weekly pain profile updates and postural indices are key factors in determining when the proprioceptive insoles need to be changed.
Series II Insoles
After completing a second series of computerized postural analyses, the patient was fitted with her second pair of proprioceptive insoles. Note that the ear's auricle is now directly aligned over the lateral malleolus.
