Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Simultaneous use of two physiotherapeutic methods in the treatment of Adolescent Idiopathic Scoliosis [ Time Frame: 3 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Forty-two girls with thoracic AIS; mean age - 14.5y. Cobb - (range 12-40) The group was divided into two randomized subgroups. DoboMed was applied in group "D" only. DoboMed and manual therapy (Kaltenborn) were applied in group "DK". The spirometry, the strength of respiratory muscles (maximal inspiratory and expiratory pressures- MIP, MEP), kyphosis (plurimeter-V) and the angle of trunk rotation (ATR) in thoracic part (Bunnell scoliometer) were estimated twice - before and after therapy.

Arms Assigned Interventions
Sham Comparator: Control Group
Control DoboMed group - only specific active exercises: symmetrical positions for exercising; asymmetrical active movements; thoracic spine kyphotization; transverse plane derotation; apical area involvement; concave ribs mobilization; exteroceptive facilitation; respiration-directed movements of the thorax and spine; three-dimensional displacement of vertebra; active autocorrection.
Behavioral: Sham therapy
Experimental: Experimental group
Experimental DoboMed and Kaltenborn manual therapy. Suitable techniques were chosen according to manual examination: cervical spine; thoracic spine; lumbar spine; costovertebral articles; pelvis position. During the 15 sessions in group "DK" we used:derotational manual terapy techniques in selected segments of spine in preparation for the exercises according to the DoboMed method; the manual techniques used in continuation study were different from techniques in pilot study.
Other: Derotational manual therapy techniques in selected segments in spine
Derotational manual therapy techniques in selected segments of spine in preparation for the exercises according to the DoboMed method.
