She is instructed to transition into the “hitch” position (c) by lifting her left heel on the same side as the convexity of the lumbar curve while keeping her hip and knee straight. It is not useful to set up a self-correction exercise that is theoretically “better” for a specific scoliosis case if the patient is not able to perform it properly and hold it for the required length of time. 36) is used only at the beginning of SEAS to help the patient achieve more effective self-correction; later, it is removed. De Mauroy JC. It includes several principles from the Schroth method, including active 3D auto-correction (along transverse, frontal, and sagittal planes), overcorrection movements beyond the midline, side shifting of the trunk in the direction opposite to the convexity of the primary curve, and repetition of corrective movements during growth to influence the direction of spinal growth. *$���$� �zG&F�bFZ���� �Lc endstream endobj startxref 0 %%EOF 281 0 obj <>stream Weiss HR. Białek M, Brzęk A, Białek E. FITS therapy impact on the value of the angle of trunk rotation in girls diagnosed with double idiopathic scoliosis. The aim of PSSE is to intervene in this vicious cycle at the level of patient education and promotion of spinal and trunk alignment by reducing or even stopping the asymmetric loading and by potentially helping to stop scoliosis progression. Google Scholar. 2002;91:357–60. Unique rotational angular breathing (RAB) exercises (Fig. Deep Breathing Exercises or Thoracic Expansion Exercises. For AIS patients, observation only is recommended in curves up to 15°. The predecessor to BSPTS was founded in 1968 in Barcelona, Spain, by Spanish physiotherapist Elena Salvá (1926–2007) (Fig. 63). Scoliosis. Once the patient is aware that their spine is supported and not relaxed, the patient then performs the self-correction first with the assistance of a mirror and later without. Scoliosis and Spinal Disorders (a, b, c, d): Schroth Body Blocks. The active cycle of breathing techniques (ACBT) is a flexible regimen comprising breathing control, thoracic expansion exercises and the FET, frequently combined with gravity-assisted positioning. Dobomed physiotherapy can also be used to stabilize progressive thoracic scoliosis in patients wearing the Chêneau brace [37, 43]. I also thank Kelly Grimes - physical therapist and specialist in spine and Schroth therapy, and Patti Orthwein - Juvenile scoliosis, pediatric physical therapist and my co-teacher for the Schroth method at the BSPTS for reviewing the manuscript and improving it with their wise and sensible suggestions. Article  “Is my body more symmetrical than before?”. During the application of these principals, as with the BSPTS method, the patient is taught how to de-collapse the concaved areas of the trunk and how to reduce the prominences. https://doi.org/10.1186/s13013-016-0076-9, DOI: https://doi.org/10.1186/s13013-016-0076-9. Active muscle control helps to prevent muscle atrophy and provides greater forces to the corrective movements of the Side Shift method. Weiss HR. Breathing exercises. Exercise programs are popular. The Schroth system of scoliosis curve classification is derived from the Schroth principle of dividing the body into “body blocks” as pictured anatomically (a) and schematically (b). With a video camera positioned behind her, the patient is able to see her posture on the screen in front of her in real-time while making postural corrections on the balance board, FITS sensory-motor balance training. Turquoise arrows represent trunk elongation with cranial elongation and caudal traction forces. volume 11, Article number: 20 (2016) 49) is a corrected posture where the collapsed areas of the trunk (the concavities) are open and expanded and the prominences (the convexities) are contained. Regardless of the age of the scoliosis patient, the treatment objective is the same: slow down and/or halt curve progression. Thus, specific exercises are not considered as an alternative to bracing or surgery but as a therapeutic intervention, which can be used alone or in combination with bracing or surgery according to individual indication. rehabilitation, exercise testing (including for ambulatory oxygen assessment), exercise prescription, airway clearance, and posi-tioning and breathing techniques. A wide range of treatment techniques and approaches from different philisophical backgrounds are utilised in Neurological Rehabilitation. PubMed  Exercises to improve proprioception and balance with the emphasis on correcting posture and instructions to “trunk shift” during activities of daily living are added later into the treatment and show higher level of integration. Mobilization and myofascial techniques to eliminate myofascial restrictions which limit three-plane corrective movement. This symbolic description helps to explain the scoliotic alterations as compensatory adaptations. This symmetrical positioning of the pelvis and the shoulder girdle is something that is unique to the Dobomed method. With the contribution of several experienced Spanish physiotherapists, but in keeping with the same basic Schroth principles as used in Germany, BSPTS created its own modified method of scoliosis physiotherapy. These postural corrections are practiced during activities of daily living in order to change habitual default postures and improve alignment, pain, and curve progression. This technique facilitates the later introduction of ‘rotatory corrective breathing.’ The overall goal is not only to expand and breathe into the collapses or concavities, but to do it in a corrective direction according to well-described biomechanical rules. Salvá became close friends with Schroth and Lehnert-Schroth, who taught Salvá about the Schroth method for the conservative treatment of scoliosis. Regarding participation in sports, BSPTS focuses on the entire child/patient and not only on the treatment of scoliosis. The basis of the Lyon method is to avoid spinal extension during exercise and enhance kyphosis of the thoracic region with lordosis of the lumbar spine as well as frontal plane correction, segmental mobilization, core stabilization, proprioception, balance and stabilization (Figs. 91) and stabilization exercises (Fig. FITS therapy may be conducted in an outpatient clinic or as a one to two-week in-patient treatment course. studies in health technology and informatics. Patients demonstrating typical FITS exercises with elastic bands, which help facilitate the scoliosis specific correctional patterns. From clinical experiences, PSSE can temporarily stabilize progressive scoliosis curves during the secondary period of progression, more than a year after passing the peak of growth. Once the brace is removed, the patient is able to maintain a corrected posture due to increased core muscle strength, improved vital capacity and maximized oxygen intake. FITS employs the same treatment protocol for JIS and AIS. Light blue arrows represent trunk elongation with cranial and caudal forces. Corrective foot loading. Strategies and techniques include: rehabilitation, exercise testing (including for ambulatory oxygen assessment), exercise prescription, airway clearance, and positioning and breathing techniques.

The Lyon school of physiotherapy for scoliosis, managed by Dr. Jean Claude de Mauroy, the head of the orthopedic medicine department at Clinique du Parc, Lyon, France (Fig. 60) is a rigid asymmetric custom brace. 2003;5(1):80–5. Arrows in the radiograph and the diagram show the direction of the thoracic shift and the derotation of the ribcage as the exercise is performed using the Lyon method, (a, b): Balance and proprioception exercises on a Swiss-ball (a) and on a balance board (b) using the Lyon method, Spinal stabilization exercises using the Lyon method, Several standard Lyon exercises in a Lyon plaster cast promoting core strength (top left), breathing and thoracic shift (bottom), and elongation, (a, b): Several standard Lyon exercises in a Lyon plaster cast promoting postural correction (a) and core strengthening (b). Incidence of surgery in conservatively treated patients with scoliosis. (Measure: rib hump/ATR, breathing/twisting), Is lordosing/kyphosing necessary? The patient is required to hold this position for ten seconds before returning to a neutral position and to repeat this exercise at least 30 times a day. To verify that they have successfully performed the self-correction, the patient must ask if their body is more symmetrical than before. 6. The Side Shift method also includes the principles of Maitland and myofascial release techniques to increase mobilization and flexibility of the joint tissues and the soft tissues, respectively (Fig. Methodology. For this reason, it is recommended that AIS patients increase participation in athletic activities, professional and/or recreational, even during fulltime bracing (Figs. Some cases of MG are less progressive, meaning individuals may be able to tolerate more exercise, while in other circumstances, less exercise may be advisable. The Dobomed method uses its own classification system for scoliosis and scoliosis treatment. MR assisted in drafting the section titled Scientific Exercise Approach to Scoliosis. This current classification system was developed specifically by Dr. Rigo in 2010 to correlate with brace design and physiotherapy [16]. Axel Hennes, head of the physical therapy department at the Asklepios Katharina Schroth Spinal Deformities Rehabilitation Centre in Bad Sobernheim, Germany. Dysfunctional breathing is a term describing breathing disorders where chronic changes in breathing pattern result in dyspnoea and other symptoms in the absence or in excess of the magnitude of physiological respiratory or cardiac disease. Dr. Gabriel Pravaz, an orthopedic surgeon, created the first orthopedic physiotherapy center in Lyon two centuries ago. PubMed  Google Scholar. Dysfunctions of the locomotor system. Every scoliosis approach or ‘school’ around the world subscribes to SOSORT’s principles and shares a common mission. Before creating the tension, the muscle balance has been improved and the new achieved balance is not lost when creating this final muscle tension. Schroth supine exercise for patients with a major lumbar curve. This group of scoliosis patients are playing basketball, which aids vertical stretching and spinal flexibility. 2010;35(13):1285–93. Rigo M, Villagrasa M, Gallo D. A specific scoliosis classification correlating with brace treatment: description and reliability. Neuromotor integration aims to integrate everyday behaviors with more correct and balanced postures, progressively developing the ability to react with active self-correction to the different requirements of social life, and challenging the patient to maintain the self-correction during activities of daily living (Fig. Four of the most commonly used exercises in the Schroth method are the “50 x Pezziball” exercise, Prone exercise, Sail exercise, and the Muscle-cylinder exercise. Assistive equipment such as balance boards (Fig. 2015;10:24. Taking advantage of their experience in treating young patients with scoliosis and the expertise of their colleagues, including Wieslaw Chwała of the Department of Biokinetics at AWF Kracow, who at the time was carrying out EMG examination and a 3D gait analysis in the Vicon system, they created their own program of scoliosis therapy. Schreiber S, Parent EC, Hedden DM, Hill D, Moreau MJ, Lou E, Watkins EM,Southon SC. SOSORT promotes and encourages conservative, evidence-based medicine regarding scoliosis and provides education, guidelines and consensus about treatment options to people with scoliosis [3]. Family counseling, with strong involvement from all family members throughout the treatment course, is also an important aspect of the SEAS treatment plan. Only very experienced therapists can manage individual treatment in a group session. The Side Shift approach uses the same breathing mechanics as the Schroth (Section 2) and DoboMed (Section 5) methods, based on the principles of rotational angular breathing that targets breathing into the concavity of the ribs. The red circle represents the concavity (weak side according to Schroth). 77). Advances in Rehabilitation I International Congress PTR I PTF T. XXII, Warszawa 2009: 123–124. During ‘phased-lock’ respiration [40] (Figs. Architects' Handbook.pdf. Although fundamental to classification, curve type and location alone do not accurately describe the complex 3D deformity. Lumbar only with hips protruding to the opposite side of the curve. It doesn’t matter if you’re not very good! 18) is a new brace: asymmetric, rigid, made from 4 mm polycarbonate [8]. The Side Shift approach encourages the mantra of “think shift” with activities of daily living and incorporates side shift exercises into everyday movements, such as going from a sitting position to a standing position (Fig. Stabilization of scoliosis curves in children with the Dobomed method can also be seen radiographically [39, 44]. Dr. Mehta initially used this approach to treat congenital scoliosis curves in children; she proposed that growth could be a corrective force for spinal deformity in children [47]. Article  The arm position and muscle activation during bilateral shoulder traction can assist in active self-elongation and in preventing postural collapse. Clinical improvement, decrease or stabilization of the scoliosis curvatures. The Body Blocks depict the trunk deformation as a change in their geometric form from a rectangle to a trapezium shape. Lunes DH, Cecilio MB, Dozza MA, Almeida PA. Quantitative photogrammetric analysis of the Klapp method for treating scoliosis. FITS goals are divided into short-term goals and long-term goals. Moreover, asymmetrical mobilization significantly rebuilds physiological thoracic kyphosis in cases of idiopathic scoliosis accompanied by a straight back [44]. This breathing exercise is also sometimes called( belly breathing or abdominal breathing). Active self-correction along three spatial planes is the most important component of SEAS. Treatment is based on an integral scoliosis care model, which includes specific education, observation or surveillance, psychological support and intervention, bracing in accordance with Rigo-Chêneau principles, and surgery. Mentioned below are most important physiotherapy exercises performed in various disease and injury conditions. Respiratory physiotherapy is the term used to describe the job of a specialist Physiotherapist who helps treat, educate and advise patients who have problems with their lungs and their breathing.

Scoliosis. Treatment of adult onset scoliosis implements a modified Schroth method based on the severity of pain and the degree and rigidity of the spinal deformity. She is instructed to transition into the “hitch” position (c) by lifting her left heel on the same side as the convexity of the curve while keeping her hip and knee straight. 46) or trunk regions, which is based on the original Schroth classifications first developed by Katharina Schroth and later modified, in 2010, by Manuel Rigo [16]. These are repeated in a cycle until your chest feels clear. In 2002 and 2008 two studies from Japan [50, 51] that investigated the Side Shift method in 39 females with AIS concluded that Side Shift exercises and the hitch exercises are useful options for idiopathic scoliosis. Stud Health Technol Inform. In recent decades, there has been a call for change among all stakeholders involved in scoliosis management. 2008;135:303–19. Scoliosis. Saudi Med J. Camille J Mangaran. In designing a treatment protocol the therapist has to answer these questions: What is the most important curve? breathing and huffing which are performed in a cycle until your chest feels clear. Weiss HR, Maier-Hennes H. Specific exercises in the treatment of scoliosis--differential indication. A patient’s personalized exercise program depends on the number of primary and secondary curves and the location of these curves. The Side Shift approach to conservative idiopathic scoliosis treatment, led by Tony Betts (Fig. It is best to be taught ACBT by a physiotherapist. Four-curve scoliosis pattern (4C) is a major lumbar curvature with a compensatory thoracic curvature and a pelvis that shifts and rotates to the opposite side of the lumbar curvature. Katharina Schroth with her daughter, Christa Lehnert-Schroth (top right). Other than the breathing exercises, patient management was similar between groups in terms of assessment, positioning and mobility. Small, moderate, and large scoliosis curves can all be treated with the Dobomed method, either with or without Chêneau bracing. Always consult your doctor or health practitioner before starting any type of exercise program. During pursed-lip breathing exercise, the patient was instructed in sequence, to breathe in gently through the nose, purse his/ her lips as though whistling and then breathe out through the long pursed lips by not exerting power until she/ he is short of breath.

Disabil Rehabil. In the early 1960’s, Antonio Negrini (Fig. As the name suggests, deep breathing works by taking slow, deep breaths, to trigger the body's relaxation response. This can be used in conjunction with deep breathing which helps the muscles relax when pain is restricting breathing. Salvá was dedicated to the treatment and rehabilitation of patients with scoliosis and other spinal deformities, such as kyphosis. A study by Schriber et al., confirms in a RCT improved self-image and quality of life in patients that were assigned to a Schroth exercise group as compared to a control group [1].

The Dobomed approach has incorporated both Klapp’s position for kyphotization of the thoracic spine [38] and Lehnert-Schroth’s approach for active asymmetrical breathing [14]. 1991;16(1):88–93. physiotherapy can help. PI19_0399_05 Breathing exercises | 7 Breathing control when climbing the stairs There is often a tendency to hold your breath when climbing the stairs but this can increase the feeling of breathlessness. The ease in which the therapy can be performed by a particular patient is another important consideration. (48b provided with the permission of Andrea Lebel, RPT, MCPA, Ottawa, Canada). The entire program of exercises includes many additional exercises, but their description falls outside the scope of this paper. The development of balance reactions is aimed at improving axial, static, and dynamic balance of the trunk. History of the Schroth method. The Schroth method has been shown to positively influence the Cobb angle, vital capacity, strength and postural defects in AIS [31]. Active 3D auto-correction in upright positions: Active 3D auto-correction exercises are performed in high positions (the spine is placed vertically) where the trunk muscles must work to support the spine against the full force of gravity (Figs. ACBT is a set of breathing exercises that loosens and moves the sputum from your airways. The original technique was inspired by the plaster cast correction principles. BSPTS principles of correction are based on the original principles described by Katharina Schroth [14]. Scoliosis. In such cases, the chosen brace will be less rigid (Sibilla) and will have to be worn for 18 to 20 h each day until the end of the progressive period (up to Risser stage 3), at which point the patient will be weaned off the brace. Designed for severe scoliosis in adolescents, the Sforzesco brace is prescribed for scoliosis curves up to 45°–50° Cobb angle or more if surgery is not an option. Salvá returned to Spain with a new perspective on scoliosis treatment and founded the Elena Salvá Institute for the conservative treatment of spinal deformities in Barcelona. Respiratory physiotherapists have a key role within the integrated care continuum of patients with respiratory diseases. Breathing control is breathing gently, using as . Weiss HR. The light blue arrow pointing to the patient’s pelvis represents pelvic correction from the right to the midline, which is required exercise when the patient has a major lumbar or thoracolumbar scoliosis curve. The blocks are deformed, translated and rotated in accordance with the spinal curve pattern, and the 3D postural correction is referred not only to a combined but to a real synchronized correction of the position (translation and rotation) and shape (deformity) of all the blocks. Breathing exercises and light physical activity can help with breathing difficulties. Romano M, Negrini A, Parzini S, Tavernaro M, Zaina F, Donzelli S, Negrini S. SEAS (Scientific Exercises Approach to Scoliosis): a modern and effective evidence based approach to physiotherapic specific scoliosis exercises. In Group A: (1) in single scoliosis, 50.0 % of patients improved, 46.2 % were stable and 3.8 % progressed, while (2) in double scoliosis, 50.0 % of patients improved, 30.8 % were stable and 19.2 % progressed. Chest breathing This type of breathing is characterised by an upward and outward movement of the chest and is found most commonly during vigorous exercise, or emergency situations.
