PurposeTo evaluate the effect of a programme of active self-correction and task-oriented exercises on spinal deformities and health-related quality of life (HRQL) in patients with mild adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS) (Cobb angle <25°).MethodsThis was a parallel-group, randomised, superiority-controlled study in which 110 patients were randomly assigned to a rehabilitation programme consisting of active self-correction, task-oriented spinal exercises and education (experimental group, 55… Expand

Interventional Clinical Trial
The aim of this study was to compare the effects of spinal stabilization and body awareness in addition to brace wearing versus classical exercises on subjective verticality perception… Expand

InterventionOther
Adults with idiopathic scoliosis improve disability after motor and cognitive rehabilitation: results of a randomised controlled trial
TLDR
The experimental programme was superior to general physiotherapy in reducing disability of adults with idiopathic scoliosis and led to improvements in dysfunctional thoughts, pain, and quality of life. Expand
The effectiveness of two different exercise approaches in adolescent idiopathic scoliosis: A single-blind, randomized-controlled trial
TLDR
It was found that patients in the Schroth group showed greater improvement in Cobb angles, thoracic trunk rotation angle, cosmetic trunk deformity, spinal mobility, and quality of life than those in the core group (p<0.05), except for in lumbar trunk rotation angles. Expand
Efficacy of three-dimensionally integrated exercise for scoliosis in patients with adolescent idiopathic scoliosis: study protocol for a randomized controlled trial
TLDR
If the intervention is effective in improving Cobb angle, angle of trunk rotation, sagittal profile, and quality of life in patients with AIS, this trial will have a positive impact and warrant a change in clinical practice. Expand
Cobb Angle Reduction in a Nearly Skeletally Mature Adolescent (Risser 4) After Pattern-Specific Scoliosis Rehabilitation (PSSR)
TLDR
This case suggests that the practice of discontinuing conservative treatment at Risser stage 4 should be re-evaluated, and PSSR is effective in stabilizing Cobb angle, and can, in some cases, reduce Cobb angle in adolescents. Expand

Background Finding an optimal treatment strategy for adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS) patients remains challenging because of its intrinsic complexity. For mild to moderate scoliosis patientsExpand
The effectiveness of core stabilization exercise in adolescent idiopathic scoliosis: A randomized controlled trial
TLDR
Improvements in the mean change in lumbar apical vertebral rotation degree and the pain domain of Scoliosis Research Society-22 in the stabilization group suggest that stabilization training should be added to rehabilitation programs in adolescent idiopathic scoliosis. Expand
Core stabilization exercises versus scoliosis-specific exercises in moderate idiopathic scoliosis treatment
TLDR
When scientific exercises approach to scoliosis (SEAS) and core stabilization (CS) exercises were administered with equal intensity, the effects of the two treatment protocols were similar in the treatment of patients with moderate adolescent idiopathic scolium (AIS). Expand
Global postural re-education in pediatric idiopathic scoliosis: a biomechanical modeling and analysis of curve reduction during active and assisted self-correction
TLDR
This study allowed quantification of thoracic curve reducibility obtained by external forces applications as well as patient’s capacity to self-correct their posture, two corrections commonly used in the GPR approach. Expand
Specific exercises reduce the need for bracing in adolescents with idiopathic scoliosis: A practical clinical trial.
TLDR
SEAS reduced the bracing rate in AIS and was more effective than UP and PSSEs are additional tools that can be included in the therapeutic toolbox for AIS treatment. Expand
SEAS (Scientific Exercises Approach to Scoliosis): a modern and effective evidence based approach to physiotherapic specific scoliosis exercises
TLDR
SEAS is an approach to scoliosis exercise treatment with a strong modern neurophysiological basis, to reduce requirements for patients and possibly the costs for families linked to the frequency and intensity of treatment and evaluations. Expand

Specific exercises reduce brace prescription in adolescent idiopathic scoliosis: a prospective controlled cohort study with worst-case analysis.
TLDR
These data confirm the effectiveness of exercises in patients with scoliosis who are at high risk of progression and compared with non-adapted exercises, a specific and personalized treatment (SEAS) appears to be more effective. Expand
The role of forward head correction in management of adolescent idiopathic scoliotic patients: a randomized controlled trial
TLDR
A forward head corrective exercise programme combined with conventional rehabilitation improved three-dimensional scoliotic posture and functional status in patients with adolescent idiopathic scoliosis. Expand
Improving excellence in scoliosis rehabilitation: A controlled study of matched pairs
TLDR
The physio-logic® programme has to be regarded as a useful ‘add on’ to Scoliosis Rehabilitation with regards to the lateral deviation of the scoliotic trunk. Expand
Preliminary results and worst-case analysis of in patient scoliosis rehabilitation.
TLDR
The fact that there was no relative progression in the patients sample treated solely by physiotherapy (preliminary study), seems to show the effectiveness of the inpatient rehabilitation programme even in cases with a bad prognosis, severe angles of curvature and unfavourable curvature patterns. Expand
The efficacy of Schroth`s 3-dimensional exercise therapy in the treatment of adolescent idiopathic scoliosis in Turkey.
TLDR
Schroth`s technique positively influenced the Cobb angle, vital capacity, strength and postural defects in outpatient adolescents in outpatient teenagers from 1999 to 2004. Expand
Treatment of Adolescent Idiopathic Scoliosis With Quantified Trunk Rotational Strength Training: A Pilot Study
TLDR
Quantified trunk rotational strength training significantly increased strength but was not effective for curves measuring 50 to 60 degrees and appeared to help stabilize curves in the 20 to 40-degree ranges for 8 months, but not for 24 months. Expand
The Effect of Rigid Versus Flexible Spinal Orthosis on the Clinical Efficacy and Acceptance of the Patients With Adolescent Idiopathic Scoliosis
TLDR
The current study showed that the failure rate of the SpineCor was significantly higher than that of the rigid spinal orthosis, and the patients’ acceptance to the SpinesCor was comparable to the conventional rigid spinal Orthosis. Expand
Incidence of curvature progression in idiopathic scoliosis patients treated with scoliosis in-patient rehabilitation (SIR): an age- and sex-matched controlled study
TLDR
The results of this study are consistent with the possibility that a supervized programme of exercise-based therapies can reduce incidence of progression in children with IS. Expand
Effectiveness of treatment with a brace in girls who have adolescent idiopathic scoliosis. A prospective, controlled study based on data from the Brace Study of the Scoliosis Research Society.
TLDR
In a prospective study by the Scoliosis Research Society, 286 girls who had adolescent idiopathic scoliosis, a thoracic or thoracolumbar curve of 25 to 35 degrees, and a mean age of twelve years and seven months were followed to determine the effect of treatment with observation only, an underarm plastic brace, and nighttime surface electrical stimulation. Expand
Effects of bracing in adolescents with idiopathic scoliosis.
TLDR
Bracing significantly decreased the progression of high-risk curves to the threshold for surgery in patients with adolescent idiopathic scoliosis and the benefit increased with longer hours of brace wear. Expand
