The intent of this Webinar is to give an overview on the core concepts that are at the base of GPR method. This technique was born 30 years ago in France from the study of Professor Philippe Souchard and especially in these past 5 years, thanks to the growing scientific publications (now around 70) it has had an enormous growth that brought it to be taught in more than 18 countries in the world with about 22000 Physical therapist already formed and growing.
During this webinar we'll see how this method analyses biomechanical and neuromuscular imbalance and how it treats them to avoid pathological compensation of alterations throughout the patient body. For that reason one of the instruments of this method are exercises made through therapeutic Postures, giving the operator the possibility to balance all those compensations under a strict and precise control. This therapeutic approach gives also the therapist the possibility to fine and actively balance the altered muscular tensions in position that simultaneously permit the decompression and manipulation of the articular surfaces. G.P.R. acts on problems that have source or that are connected to an altered biomechanics; among this we find:
Deviations of the spinal column as the scoliosis, hyperlordosis, hypercifosis, knee valgus or varum, flat or cavus foot.
Problems that come from articular hyperpression as discal hernias. Cervical, dorsal, lumbar articular lesions ( bad positioning of one or more vertebras in comparison with the others ). It has an excellent effect on all the respiratory problems due to an altered mechanics. In Sport it also acts in increasing of sport performance. Last but not least in cases of Neurological spasticity it can help to manage the hypertonus( being an tone inibitory approach)
Emiliano Grossi was born in Rome, where he still works as director physiotherapist of the Rehabilitation and Physiotherapy Center FisioClinic. After experiences and decorations achieved in Italy and in the United States, in 2000 he graduated with honors from the Faculty of Physiotherapy of the University La Sapienza in Rome. Since 2005 he is assigned from the University of Manual Therapy (UIPTM - France), directly by Professor Souchard, as a teaching member of GPR (Global Postural Re- education Souchard) Italian post University degree. His interests, as well as to all the pathological aspects related to the spine and the human posture, are directed towards rehabilitation of the problems related to the sport and to the study of how to increase the performance in various disciplines.
