Biography: André Marques
The physiological basis, mental and emotional structure and life habits are important variables to take into account in the performance of an athlete as well as prevent injuries. Each human being has its own individual body and mind constitution. Those works as a inseparable pair. Every health professional should develop observation and body signs reading to access to constitutional aspects. Body physiognomy, behaviors, communication, blood type, season’s born and daily routines are indicators to individual constitution. Thus, to extract the best qualities, improve sport performance and at the same time prevent injuries, each physical and mental constitution of an athlete should be clear. Knowing about individual constitution allows to adapting training, increasing weaknesses, improving communication (given instructions) and adjusting nutrition to each athlete. In the case of an injury the affected area of body will tell us how the problem relates to psychological aspects. Thereby, injury’s location could be an indicator of a specific body-mind dysfunction. To solve and reverse injuries practitioners should understand the underlying role of mind into body clinical manifestations. Additionally, other evaluation’s types allow access to a more detailed and specific diagnosis. Hence, combined different therapies and mental approach has been effective in solving and reversing injuries and diseases patterns. This approach will change the view of the human body and improve root treatment.
