Health: osteopath, for AstroSam at the return marathon effect and shrill voice


The expert who treated US military pilots explains the impact of the 'gravity blow'


Milan, 11 June (AdnKronos Health)

Weak bones, fatigued muscles, a wobbling step, lungs and other 'squeezed' organs, shortness of breath. "The feeling is that of having just run a full marathon without ever having trained." But with one more setback: "The voice that comes out with difficulty and becomes more shrill, with a low hold on long phrases and a difficulty in producing certain sounds". Valentina Carlile, the osteopath of the stars who takes care of the uvula (and not only) of artists with millions of records sold and tours that touch 100 stages around the world, thus describes the effect of the 'blow of gravity 'that will hit astronaut Samantha Cristoforetti upon her landing on Earth after 200 days in orbit.


On the strength of a long international experience that has seen her 'get her hands' also on military pilots from the American bases in California and Texas, struggling with microgravity simulations that mimic staying among the stars, the young Milanese professional explains why - in the "at least 6 months of rehabilitation" that AstroSam will have to face to allow his body to come to terms with the newly found force of gravity - also "osteopathy can certainly be useful. It has been scientifically proven, precisely because of the ability of osteopathic treatment. to produce a biostimulation of the tissues and a fluidic and fascial rebalancing. Fundamental elements to help the organism as a whole to overcome the sudden transition to gravity ".
