Automated technique, dissociation of the scapular and pelvic girdles in decompression.
The DPA mobilizes the lower limbs by integrating a repetitive 3D lemniscatory movement. By propagation, this movement is transmitted to higher structures by mobilizing the lumbar-pelvi-femoral complex to the cervical spine. One of the advantages of this technique is to generate a dissociation between the scapular and pelvic girdles, a determining element during walking. The dpa is used for the patient in active and / or passive mode.
Locomotor stimulation is now crucial in orthopedic and neurological rehabilitation (Laborde & al., 2003). The goal for the therapist is to set up a rehabilitation program to restore or improve functional skills, particularly biomechanically, physiologically and neurologically. The theme of walking is a central element in rehabilitation because it is a vital function in humans, conditioning its standard of living and autonomy (Nadeau & al., 1999). Certain key factors are clearly identified and it is now proven that exercises focused on the repetition of movement (active or passive), improvement of joint mobility, muscle building or proprioception are fundamental.
