TOPIC: CHANGES IN PHYSICAL PERFORMANCE OF CHILDREN WITH SCOLIOSIS

COURTESY OF REMEDIAL EXERCISES THERAPY

No doubt, that any temporary deviation from a normal structure of the spine is scoliosis. Side (Lateral) deviations are encountered more often than Frontal-Posterior. Side or Lateral deviations have prove to pose serious Medical-Social problems, because of their prevalence in the young population, continuity tendency, can lead to serious deformations, affecting general posture and are difficult to get rid of.

According to literature statistics, it has become evident that scoliosis are more frequently encountered spinal deformity because majority of them has tendency of continuity (chronic) and thus, leading one seek medical attention more frequent, as this condition become more serious and also affecting other organs and system of the body. These adverse changes manifests strongly in the 2nd Phase and other phases.

The changes do affect posture, position of the spinal column, muscles, internal organs to mention, but a few. All these changes influence in a way the physical capacity (performance) of effected children.

On the above mentioned background or rather circumstances; we decided to set a target to study how changes in physical capacity of children with a 2nd Grade (Phase) Scoliosis who are under-going Remedial Exercise Therapy (RET). Remedial Therapeutic Exercise sessions were conducted and supervised by a Methodist for Therapeutic Exercise Ms.P.Stoikova of the 14th Polyclinic.

In order to follow and detect changes in physical capacity of the study group of children that were registered for remedial exercise therapy, measurements were recorded at the beginning of the very first session and there after six (6) months.* The following test exercises were applied:

- Lifting of lower limbs from horizontal (supine) lying – for 20” (seconds)
- Lifting of the Trunk to Full-Extension from horizontal lying position – 20” (seconds)
- Lifting of the Trunk from lying horizontal to Sitting – 30” (seconds)
- Trunk inclination and holding the posture up to 2” (seconds)with observation of inclination depth
- Lifting of the trunk from lying for 20” (seconds) with fixed lower limbs

I.LIFTING OF LOWER LIMBS FROM HORIZONTAL (SUPINE) LYING – 20”
