The manual dynamic treatment allows the moving and fully tensioned soft tissue to be adjusted and the lesional movement to be corrected quickly and efficiently. By taking into account the tonic variations of the tissues in their activity, it is possible to achieve optimal tissue adjustment and central integration.
The dynamic unlocking manoeuvres are of particular interest in the care and monitoring of active athletes and patients.
The method can treat the patient in different positions while moving, under load or at rest. It offers several ways of working, from superficial to deep (fascial, cutaneous, muscular and articular) and treats the body as a whole, from head to toe.
Orthokinesy manipulation allows the re-harmonisation of joint and tissue amplitude losses without spinal manipulation. It is as effective in the acute stage (torticollis...) as in the chronic stage (tendinopathy, lumbago...).
This method, which has been particularly prized in sport, promotes active postural rehabilitation using elastic straps that can be modulated and adapted according to the pathology or mechanical defects analysed.
It can be used to reprogram a sports movement by proprioception or to strengthen deficient postural muscle chains.
It is also of particular interest in orthopaedics (scoliosis) and neurology (multiple sclerosis, hemiplegia...).
Even for an experienced professional, many elements escape careful visual and palpatory examination. Medical imaging can be of great help, especially when movement analysis is required. During orthokinesic training, the postural and dynamic imaging ‘OPS Clinic’ will be used to find the cause of pain and body imbalances invisible to the naked eye.
A good analysis of the patient is an indispensable basis for effective treatment.
There are still doubts about the benefits of certain models of orthopaedic shoes and tools. Orthokinesic training lists the advantages and disadvantages of each therapeutic tool according to the pathology, the desired performance and the desired preventive effect.
Both postural and dynamic tools (foot, maxillofacial and oculomotor) are used to facilitate the reprogramming of dysfunctional sensors, to obtain optimal efficiency and to provide long-lasting results.
