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.
