In the assessment of scoliosis picture should cover the entire spine, hip bones with plates and hips, made standing in the AP and lateral projections. On the basis of a well-made images, you can specify the parameters of scoliosis (type of scoliosis, Risser test, the Cobb angle, the angle of rotation of the vertebrae, the index kifo - lordosis, etc.) which allows the selection of the proper physiotherapy and assessment of treatment effects.
Materials and methods
We evaluated a group of 70 children diagnosed with idiopathic scoliosis in age from 7 to 18 years residing in the treatment by the Fed at the Centre for Rehabilitation in Zgorzelec. The children remained in the two monthly turnusach apart semester. During the stay twice a day participated in therapy by the Fed. Analysis and evaluation of X-ray were performed before treatment and at the end of the half-year stage. With images were evaluated Cobb angle, vertebral rotation by raimondii test Risser, type of scoliosis by King-Moe.
The results have been developed in the form of tables and charts, broken down by the scoliosis to 20 °, 30 °, 40 ° and above 40 °.
Comparison of X-ray images is one of objective assessment in the treatment of scoliosis. The results presented in the study are the evaluation of the effectiveness of the method the Fed.
