Many people asked me how do they know if their postural problems depend on problems of dental height or there can be other causes. How is it possible to know that this problems can not depend on other factors?
Well, there are three way to know it:
1- Ask for a SPI (Starecta Postural Identification), from here: http://www.starecta.com/starecta-postural-identification
2- Do the Starecta activation test without the Rectifier
3- All the postural problems depend on the dental height
1- Ask for a Starecta Postural Identification (SPI)?
The SPI is an analysis conducted by an expert in Starecta technique (typycally Moreno Conte or one of his pupil) to determine the muscle asymmetries of the body.Thanks to a series of lines of different colours, the practioner of the Starecta method outlines some of the features that put the muscle compensation, asymmetries and soft parts movements (skin, cartilage, …) on display. Looking at the movement of the soft parts (skin, cartilage, …) it can be traced which are the strongest muscles and which is the type of asymmetry that affect the person undergoing for analysis. Thanks to this analysis it is possible to trace the forces that have caused the postural asymmetry and it is possible to understand how to contrast them. So ask for a SPI is the first step to make if you are indecisive on your problems, if you are not sure that Starecta can help you.
2 – Starecta activation test
There is also a faster way to understand if Starecta fits for your needs or not.
You have to do the “Starecta activation test” without Rectifier. Watch the Step 8 of the tutorial video of Starecta activation (https://youtu.be/MNY2e-SqvTc?t=8m48s)
You have to redo the 8th step without Rectifier. If you pass the test without Rectifier, it means that you do not need it.
So, if during the pressure on your arms you manage to keep them straight, despite the pressure, you don’t need Starecta at all. It means that you dental height is perfect. So if you have body tension problems probably the cause is to find somewhere else.
3 – All the problems depend on the dental height
Although I have given you two tools you can use to determine your need to use Starecta or not, I want to calm you down on a point: all the postural problems depend on a lack of dental height, so you never make a mistake using Starecta. The other factors that posturologists consider concauses are de facto variables that do not have much influence on posture.
If you read the article “Body posture depends on teeth” you will see yourself that how the human biomechanism works and how much it depends on teeth. If the occlusion is incorrect, if the teeth and mandibula do not support properly the skull, it is created a bad occlusion that has repercussions on the whole body. This is the phenomenon that generates scoliosis, lordosis and kyphosis. The repercussions on the rest of the body of a bad posture are through swallowing!
Swallowing transfers to the underlying parts the correct or wrong postural input, so the body adapts itself to such inputs. That is why it is necessary to correct the occlusion offering the skull a correct dental support.
Unfortunately the way that millions of dentists from all over the world “correct the occlusion” does not solve the problem of the dental height, in fact it can aggravate the problem. It is well known that many dentists file the teeth to “correct the occlusion”, but in this way they low the dental height so the skull sink and all the postural problems we know are created. Doc. Francesco D’Emilio wrote many articles that report this fact (article in Italian): “I danni dell’ortodonzia: esempi pratici” (http://occlusology.com/danni-dellortodonzia-esempi-pratici/).
Unfortunately dentists work, for now, is not the solution, but it is part of the problem. The dissemination work we have been carrying out for years with Starecta will also be aimed at making everyone working in the orthodontic field well aware of the dangers for their patients.
How the occlusion transfers wrong or correct inputs to the rest of the body?
I send you back again to the report “Body posture depends on teeth”. Here it is well explained that the skull is not supported only by the cervical vertebra, but also the low jaw becomes a stable structure and has a bearing function of the skull, in the moment of the occlusive contact. That is right, the maximum occlusion stability is being produced during the swallowing phase.
During the swallowing all the muscles of the stomatology system are being activated. These are the strongest muscles of the body, so imagine what happens when all the most powerful muscles of the human body are activated at the same time.
During this process, the lifting and decoupling muscles of the jaw contract at the same time. These muscles work in an opposite way becoming a beam that gives a stabilizing effect to the jaw.
But what happens if the premolar and molar teeth are not completely extruded or they have sinked during the years?
Simply the skull changes inclination, bending in the direction where the teeth are less extruded (or more consummated). The skull tends to come down until an occlusion contact is recovered.
As we have already said, the drop of the teeth can occur in the years because of a slow dental consumption or, rapidly, because of a bad dentist work.
The lowering and non-extrusion of molars over the years makes the skull sink, comprising the cervical area and forcing the spine into a small place.
From here on, the skull will lose it centre of gravity and the body will carry out a series of biomechanical changes, such as the shortening of its physiological curves, such a slombar loins and cervical and dorsal kyphosis.
So if you have postural problems, you can relax, the only way you have to solve them is through the rehabilitation of your dental height. And Starecta is the only method in the world that face properly this problem.
