Course contents summary
The first part of the Posture and Rehabilitation module deals with general concepts on vertebral dynamics, physiology of the static and its perturbations, ascending static equilibrium, descending static adaptation.
The second part of the module deals with the pathophysiological aspects of the rachis statics: deformations, scoliosis.

in the functional evaluation the shortenings, retractions and tensions are recognized and examined; in the planning and planning of the rehabilitative treatment the patient's care is taken into consideration, the rehabilitation techniques, the therapeutic proposals, the respiratory education, the stretching postures, the manual correction maneuvers.
