Scoliosis Treatment

What is scoliosis and how is it treated?

A scoliosis (ancient Greek: σκολιός, skolios "crooked") is a lateral deviation of the vertebral column from the longitudinal axis with rotation (twisting) of the vertebrae about the longitudinal axis and torsion of the vertebral bodies - accompanied by structural deformations of the vertebral bodies. This can no longer be erected by using the muscles.
Scolioses are classified according to their cause and origin, the position of their bends and the curvature pattern, according to their extent (angles of curvature and degrees of rotation)

Idiopathic scoliosis

In about 90% of all cases, the cause of scoliosis is not known. Three forms of this idiopathic scoliosis are distinguished on account of the age of origin:
1. Infantile idiopathic scoliosis (IIS): development until age 3
2. Juvenile idiopathic scoliosis (JIS): Genesis between 4 and 10 years of age
3. Idiopathic adolescent colorectal cancer (AIS): development from the age of 11 years

The idiopathic scoliosis has nothing to do with the so-called "infant scoliosis", which is usually only a short-term deficit in the first year of life.

Symptomatic scoliosis (secondary scoliosis)

The remaining 10% of the scoliosis are distributed as follows:
• Congenital scoliosis (congenital scoliosis) caused by congenital disorder, Klippel-Feil syndrome, spina bifida, in skeletal dysplasia with exclusive involvement of the spine (brachyolmia)
• Neuropathic scoliosis caused by nervous and muscular diseases, such as cerebral palsy, spinal muscular atrophy or even poliomyelitis
• Myopathic scoliosis caused by muscular dystrophies or arthrogryposis
• Scoliosis by systemic diseases such as neurofibromatosis, skeletal dysplasia, osteogenesis imperfecta
• Iatrogenic scoliosis, ie scoliosis due to medical treatment (for example radiation or after surgery by scarring)
• posttraumatic scoliosis after activity, amputations or tumor operations in the spinal column.



Scoliotic deficiencies of up to 10 ° Cobb are not required for treatment.

Depending on the severity of the scoliosis, Manuel therapy, physiotherapy with trening (SHROTH PRİNCİPEN), corset treatment and stiffening spine operations are used. The various treatment methods are completing each other .

  90% of all scoliosis can be treated conservatively with MANUAL TERAPY, PHYSIOTERAPY AND EXERCISES (SHROTH PRINCIPLES) BEFORE 17.LIFE WITHOUT surgery.
