Theta-Orthotics Quantify the Treatment of Posture

Theta-Orthotics Quantify the Treatment of Posture

New research that quantifies the relationship between foot function and human biomechanics has unraveled the age long question of human posture. Thousands of researchers and medical practitioners have reported a correlation between how we walk and stand and the curvatures of our spine. This postural relationship has been linked to many symptoms and conditions, treated currently and for more than two hundred years by physicians and therapists.

New research that quantifies the relationship between foot function and human biomechanics has unraveled the age long question of human posture. Thousands of researchers and medical practitioners have reported a correlation between how we walk and stand and the curvatures of our spine. This postural relationship has been linked to many symptoms and conditions, treated currently and for more than two hundred years by physicians and therapists.

Brent A. Jarrett, DPM, primary researcher and president of Theta-Orthotics, has defined a one to one relationship between angular control of the human foot and our ability to stand straight during weight bearing activity. These measurements define the forces that rotate the lower extremity, stabilize the pelvis, and ultimately create the alignment of our spinal structures.

Physicians and patients have experienced and reported the benefits of postural improvement associated with the use of many different foot control devices. Medical literature has generally described how control of both forefoot and rearfoot function can be used to treat many chronic conditions of the muscles, tendons, and joints altered by walking activity. Never before has anyone quantified accurately this important relationship.

Until now, application of these principles has been confined to the realm of art, as the mathematical documentation necessary to permit study as a science, has not been available. Basic research that has defined these angular measurements began over 20 years ago and has since been studied clinically by Dr. Jarrett and his colleagues. Studies now document the specific correction levels that can be used to optimally stabilize and restore posture at levels previously believed impossible.

Patients report immediate changes in forces on their posture and are amazed at the benefits as they progressively increase correction to levels way beyond traditional application. Dr. Jarrett personally describes these postural benefits, with angular corrections more than twice those used by any other physicians, as "unbelievable."

Dr. Jarrett added, "These understandings will completely change our approach to the treatment of many chronic medical conditions." He suggests that the relationship between posture and health is one that has never been fully understood and is of the utmost importance.
