Dobomed Method, developed in 1979, by the Polish Dr. Krystyna Dobosiewicz (1931- 2007), is a conservative approach to Idiopathic Scoliosis, aimed at both deformity of the trunk and restoration of respiratory function. It has incorporated in its techniques both the position of the Klapp Method for the retraining of the normal 'kyphosis' of the thoracic spine and the technique of active asymmetrical breathing by Lehnert-Schroth (Lunes et al., 2010 , Berdishevsky et al., 2016). The mobilization of the primary bulges is carried out through a closed kinetic chain, in a symmetrical position of the pelvis and shoulders, emphasizing both the pelvis and the shoulders so that they are kept stable during the exercise and during the phase of inhalation and exhalation, respectively. active asymmetric respiration.
The Lyon school of conservative care for scoliosis, is managed by Dr. Jean Claude de Mauroy, who is the head of the orthopaedic medicine department at Clinique du Parc, Lyon, France. Physical therapy exercises in this approach are supplemental to the bracing and based on the extra-pyramidal system.
Dr. de Mauroy is President of the SIRER (International Society of Spine Research) and was the president of the SOSORT in 2013. He is the author of numerous publications concerning the Lyon method of physical therapy and bracing and is co-inventor of the new Lyon ART brace (2013).
This Webinar will address some of the fundamental bio-mechanical concepts of idiopathic scoliosis such as: homo sapiens virtualization and sagittal balance of the spine, chaotic versus linear scoliosis, tensegrity and plastic deformation, 3D and coupled spine movements, Therapy and bracing.
