Correlation between balance and Adolescent Idiopathic Scoliosis (AIS) is still unclear. To identify the most useful type of physical exercises to be proposed for conservative treatment, is interesting to explore better this field. Our aim was to evaluate the changes of scoliosis curves in a group AIS patients while submitted to an unbalancing situation. We considered in a pre-post trial 14 AIS patients (46 curves), 12 to 15 years old, with 19.3+/-9.9 degrees Cobb curves. Assessment has been… CONTINUE READING
