Abstract

Idiopathic scoliosis is one 3 of the most frequent spine diseases in adolescents. It is characterized by an inclination in the frontal plane of the vertebrae and a rotation in the transverse plane. This paper aims to demonstrate the efficiency of the Vojta and Schroth therapies for recovering the adolescents with scoliosis. The research was performed on three female subjects, aged between 11 and 13 years old. Following the assessment and individualized physical therapy programs, we can say that the originally established hypothesis was confirmed. The results demonstrated that the two forms of therapy are effective, obtaining 6 to 20-degree improvements in the Cobb angle.
