Abstract provided by Publisher
The biodynamic method of three-dimensional correction of idiopathic scoliosis is based on the pathomechanics of idiopathic scoliosis, and consists in active, segmental, three-dimensional correction of spinal curvature. The course of action focuses in the vicinity of the apical vertebra. Proprioceptive facilitation is applied on the concave side of the curvature, and exteroceptive facilitation on the convex side. Correction, likewise proprio- or exteroceptive facilitation, is phase-locked with asymmetric respiratory movement, as well as with particular phases of the respiratory cycle. In the course of exercises three-planar movement is generated, opposite to the direction in which scoliosis is progressing. This method is in accordance with the state of the art of scoliosis pathomechanics. The method requires detailed training, and can then can be applied at home under periodic control by a physician and a physiotherapist. The method can be applied in tandem with a Cheneau brace, as well as in surgical pretreatment. A etailed description of the method of three-dimensional scoliosis treatment will be presented in this article.
