Treatment goals: To stop the development of deformities of the spine, reducing the asymmetries of the trunk, to reduce the forces that promote the development of deformation, to reduce pain in cases where, improve posture and functionality, to improve respiratory capacity and allow the patient to maintain better posture in all daily activities.
Between the combination of methods we use to achieve our goals, are the following:
SEAS (Scientific Exercise Approach to Scoliosis) is the acronym for the scientific approach to exercise for scoliosis. There is a method, but an approach and therefore are in constant evolution, thanks to knowledge and scientific evidence that ISICO (Italian Spine Scientific Institute) achieves through research.
The SEAS based on a specific active art self-correction of the attitude performed without outside help, and then integrates functional exercises. Prior assessment tests will guide the selection of exercises that are most appropriate for each individual patient.
Improving the stability of the spine while the patient is in active self-correction is the primary objective of the SEAS. The purpose of SEAS exercises is to train an automatic reaction to achieve a more correct position, so as to encourage the maintenance of a three-dimensional correction of posture during activities of daily living
As a self-correction can be set to search for the best possible alignment of the patient can achieve in three dimensions. The three-dimensional self-correction is considered one of the most important elements for arranging the maintenance treatment. The SOSORT (International Society on Scoliosis Orthopedic and Rehabilitation Treatment) attaches to the Three-dimensional self-correcting the first position in the ranking of important elements to be included in the exercises. The SEAS exercises belong to the Special Physiotherapy Exercises for Scoliosis (PSSE) and is in agreement with the guidelines of SOSORT.
The patient is trained to implement a middleware program which progresses to be consistent with the therapeutic objectives.
The Schroth method is an internationally recognized three-dimensional conservative treatment method for people of all ages, mainly children using corrective breathing techniques for the treatment of scoliosis, kyphosis and lordosis. Through special exercises method aims to correct all the deformities of the spine. The result is the reduction of pain and slowing or stopping the progression of abnormal tuberosities spine and improving cardio-respiratory function, mobility and stability of. The exercises are designed individually, depending on the form and severity of the curve. The specially designed exercises can be performed at various locations, upright, sitting or kneeling position using minimal equipment and a mirror on the wall. The therapist guides the patient to achieve the correct activation of muscles that provide the corrected posture.
Kinesio Τaping method
The method Kinesio Taping® is a recovery technique by elastic ligature that is designed to facilitate the body's natural healing process, while providing support and stability to the muscles and joints without restricting the range of body movement while ensuring retention of the mobilization of soft tissue results to extend the benefits of the therapy administered in the clinical setting. The film is hypoallergenic, Latex-free, and contains no drug. Worn for days at a time, is water resistant and safe for populations ranging from pediatric as geriatric cases. Successfully treat a variety of orthopedic, neuromuscular, nefrologikesn and other medical conditions.
The film Kinesio® Tex is applied to the patient based on the needs of the following evaluation. The findings of the clinical evaluation or assessment dictate the details of the film application. The film can be applied in many ways and has the ability to re-educate the neuromuscular system, to reduce pain and inflammation, promote performance optimization, injury prevention and good circulation and healing and help return the body to homeostasis.
Manual Therapy (Kalternborn – Mulligan)
This treatment manually for treating neuro-musculo-skeletal problems such as musculoskeletal pain, or loss of mobility of a joint. The techniques used relate mobilization or joints manipulations, soft tissue or nerve tissue. Objective To determine the etiology of the problem and to address the symptoms and increase / restore functionality of the patient.
