The balance of the body in space is ensured by the interaction of the vestibular, visual, proprioceptive systems and the musculoskeletal system under the control of the structures of the central nervous system, which are united by the concept of «system of maintaining staticdynamic control». It is possible to assess the role of each element of this system in providing statodynamic control in a number of pathological conditions, as well as in the aging process of the body, when their dysfunction leads to the appearance of neurological symptoms. Statodynamic control is based on maintaining postural orientation (the body’s ability to actively maintain the correct position of body segments in relation to the gravity vector, visual and proprioceptive stimuli, as well as in relation to each other) and postural equilibrium (the ability of the brain to maintain balance at the time of exposure to various destabilizing forces — static or dynamic balance). The principal direction of pathogenetic therapy for patients with imbalance is the stimulation of neuroplasticity, which allows modifying the neuronal
matrix in the statodynamic control system, thus creating the basis for effective sanogenesis.
