GENTIL, Isabel. Perception of the own corporal image, in people with limp. Index Enferm [online]. 2007, vol.16, n.56, pp.12-16. ISSN 1699-5988.

The body is not only anatomy or biology, is symbolic expression. The body, historically, has been used by the human beings as the most nearby instrument to symbolize. Traditionally the person with limp has been stigmatized. At present the corporal perfection is chased and rewarded socially. The gymnasiums, the diets, the cosmetic surgery, the cosmetics move millions. By all it we questioned how the persons perceive their body with lamp. A qualitative investigation was done, using as method of work the analysis of the speech of the realized interviews. We think that they have experienced in yes same a process that began with the conformity of your body, conflict with your proper body and the admission of your corporal image, which have passed from the infancy, it spends for the adolescence and ends in a personal maturity, where they are perceived to yes same as the whole constructed complex that includes the body, the physical deficiency, the valuation of yes same, the will power, the way to be.
