Whiplash injury can be defined as a non-contact rapid acceleration-deceleration head-neck trauma during which the kinematics of the cervical spine are completely disrupted. Because of the impact a sudden violent head retro-flexion is followed by an as much as violent head antero-flexion. The therapy influenced Tonic muscles by increasing labyrinthine percentage and induced a reduction […]

The diagnosis of patients in modern neuro-otogical centres has to include not only history and examination, but also objetive and quantitative tests. In this study stress the importance of a short but significant given to study the vestibular function through of vestibular Test of Balance (TOB) the most common and actually wide spread technique to […]
Objective: to analyze the oscillatory velocity of the pressure center (COP) of the body in different sensorial contexts in patients with Ménière’s Disease. Methods: 15 subjects, 02 males and 13 females, aged 28-71 years, who presented defined diagnostic of Ménière’s Disease were submitted to evaluation of the modified clinical test of sensorial integration (mCTSIB) by […]
The usefulness of conventional posturography when the changes of muscle tonus of the lower limbs affect position of the center of gravity which movement is measured is well known. The radius of the gravity center deflection such as length of the „way” and velocity of the movement can be calculated and compared during sequences with […]
It seems to be very interesting to compare the results of the vestibular testing and the somatosensory evoked potentials (SEP) in cases with cervical diseases. This multimodal neurophysiological analysis of the patients suffering from cervical spondylosis before and after neurosurgical treatment is the first part of this long-term study.
The relationship between occlusion and equilibrium system must be interpreted as a base condition to program a rehabilitation, both in stomatognatic problems and in equilibrium problems. Use of stabylometric system, using references to vestibular, visual, somatosensorial systems, the stabylometric system allows to evaluate the interferences occurring during compensation within the single parts that made the […]
Dai dati della Letteratura e dalle discussioni in merito alla relazione esistente tra apparato stomatognatico e postura, si può dedurre che una patologia a carico di una delle componenti del sistema stomatognatico può modificare l’equilibrio, influenzando le afferenze propriocettive degli altri distretti. I disordini cranio mandibolari possono causare disturbi funzionali della colonna cervicale. Durante la […]
