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.

Origin of Klapp Method: Rudolf Klapp developed his method in 1940 after an observation about the fact that only bipeds present scoliosis since the orthostatic position favors the appearance of the phenomenon. Its principle is to re-establish the normal functionality and flexibility of the spine in all dimensions (articular, vertebral), reorganizing itself and promoting a superficial and efficient structural remodeling in its correction. Working bipeds in quadruped position, the thoracic spine when horizontal would eliminate the force of gravity, the movements of the rib cage would have greater amplitude and the spine would suffer maximum relaxation having a greater expansion and mobilization of the rib cage. Despite being a little researched technique, it is widely used in clinical practice in the treatment of scoliosis; as it is a global vision technique, it corrects all the compensations caused by postural disharmony, directing to a new body scheme where postural normality will stop the present symptoms.
