Webinar: The newly described postural disease as an early warning system for chronic systemic diseases
This webinar will be held live in German language. The English translation will become available via the papimi expert area a few weeks after the event.
In the changing landscape of orthopaedics, Dr. Christoph Bäumer advocates for a biologized and functional medicine approach, emphasizing the inadequacy of traditional symptom-based treatments. Highlighting the diagnostic and therapeutic role of postural medicine, he sees it as an early warning system for chronic illnesses, offering an interdisciplinary strategy for effective patient care.
Orthopaedics, like other areas of medicine, is currently being “biologised” by new findings in basic research, which makes new therapeutic strategies possible. Functional medicine is one of the possible answers to previously unanswered questions. This is because the burden of disease in society is changing, people are becoming ill earlier and are living shorter lives than just a few years ago. It is not the administration of what appears to be the right medication for an ICD-codeable “disease” (= symptoms such as pain, inflammation, arthrosis, rheumatism, high blood pressure, dementia, multiple sclerosis, diabetes mellitus, psoriasis, glaucoma, etc.), is not the way of healing. the path of the art of healing. The treatment of the actual disease-causing mechanisms, the then symptom-causing of the complex “human” system with the consequence of this disease entity, are increasingly becoming the goal of progressive researchers and therapists. Longevity research and the findings from the Blue Zones are examples of this. In day-to-day practice, there is a recurring, disproportionate accumulation of postural asymmetries and misalignments in connection with neurological and internal, but also urological and gynaecological or paediatric diseases. paediatric diseases. The systemic diseases and postural abnormalities have a complex complex interaction in terms of cause and effect, in the sense of a vicious circle in both directions. a vicious circle in both directions. The focus is on certain disturbed principles of health of the person are the focus of the therapist. These interrelationships are presented diagnostically and therapeutically as an overview. “Every chronic illness manifests itself early on in posture, and posture-related complaints often lead people to the practices rather than the preliminary stages of the as yet unrecognised disease itself. This means that postural medicine can be used as an interdisciplinary diagnostic early warning system and be used equally as a therapy strategy in our practices.” (Dr. Christoph Bäumer)
