Materials and methods Thirty-five girls with AIS double major (mean Cobb’s angle – Th=27o±7,5; L=24o±5,6) were divided for two randomized groups. In group A was applied only standard DoboMed [1]. In-group A-plus was applied triple method (DoboMed + OMT Kaltenborn-Evjenth + Dynamic Brace System – Meditrac). The derotation manual therapy techniques and(More)
UNLABELLED The aim of the study was to evaluate the positive effects of combination of several physiotherapy methods on the respiratory function on example of a case report. MATERIAL AND METHODS 14 years old girl with an adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS), right thoracic (primary curve, Cobb angle = 40°, AVR = 12°) and left lumbar (secondary curve,(More)
BACKGROUND The use of manual therapy in the treatment of scoliosis has been controversial. Scientific reports do not clearly indicate its effectiveness or harmfulness. The aim of this study was to determine the effectiveness of passive and active derotation techniques of manual therapy according to Kaltenborn-Evjent on the reduction of the angle of trunk(More)
Introduction: Exercise-based approaches exist; however, it is unclear whether these approaches are based on scientific findings in the literature on trunk muscle deficits in scoliosis that could be targeted by exercises. The aims of this study were to systematically review the literature to understand the functional muscular properties of paraspinal muscles(More)
Background Conservative treatment of idiopathic scoliosis is a difficult and complex therapeutic process, witch not always is finished successfully. It seems that manual therapy may be used as an element in the preparatory phase for active 3D specific exercises. A systematic review of the literature (which is rather poor) performed by Romano and Negrini(More)
Methods This is a prospective, randomized, and double blind study. 17 in-patient adolescents with idiopathic scoliosis treated with DoboMed (DM) were studied for trunk morphology (surface topography – ATR, Hump Sum, absolute rotation, total rotation, POTSI and clinical examination – ATR by scoliometer, kyphosis and lordosis by plurimeter). Measurements were(More)
Material and methods Forty girls with AIS (range of Cobb angle 15-35 degree) were examined. The group was divided into two randomized subgroups “D”(N=18) and “DK” (N=22). DoboMed was applied in group “D” (only). DoboMed and manual therapy was applied in the group “DK”. Derotational stretch mobilization techniques in selected segments of thoracic spine were(More)
BACKGROUND Major surgical procedures as well as general anesthesia contribute to muscle weakness and posture instability and may result in increased postoperative complications and functional disorders resulting from an elective operation. OBJECTIVES We aim to state the significance of backward walking as a form of interval march training with patients(More)
