SUMMARY Background. The effects of faulty postures include disturbances of the symmetric distribution of compressive and tensile forces acting on both sides of the body axis and the emergence of harmful shear forces. The torques of antigravity muscles also change unfavourably. This may lead to the development of a repetitive strain syn drome, stenosis of(More)
BACKGROUND Maintaining functional fitness is an important problem in elderly people. Effective balance control is one of its main aspects. Evaluation and diagnosis of the weakest link in balance control (especially in this age group) facilitates appropriate prevention and rehabilitation. The goal of this study was to determine the role of the optic(More)
Exemplification of movement patterns is most noticeable in the youngest pupils group. Generally, children do not know which patterns are correct and which ones are risk factors. After correcting and stabilizing some improper patterns, a child can perform their daily activities without constant cognizance of their appropriateness. The concept of this(More)
BACKGROUND Pain-related abnormalities of the economy of walking are the most important factor adversely affecting overall physical activity of patients with chronic lower limb ischaemia. These patients are routinely managed conservatively, with the aim of improving pain-free claudication distance. The aim of this study was to examine the impact of HiToP on(More)
BACKGROUND Postural development progresses through a series of stages (growth spurts, development of balance and coordination, postural stability) which occur when children are at school age. The reduction in the level of physical activity, increased body weight, overloaded school bags, asymmetry of the backpack straps, the method of putting on and taking(More)
BACKGROUND Postural alignments, secondary curves of spine and tendency to unequal body weight distribution are the compensatory mechanisms in scoliosis, eventually leading to disturbances in the regulation of body posture. The pathological pattern of incorrect posture, evokes a vicious circle of causes and effects, which probably includes alterations in(More)
