Idiopathic scoliosis is often linked with poor balance. Vision is vital in the control of your posture as some studies have shown that static postural performance is 250% better with eyes open than when closed. Then, what influence does vision have on idiopathic Scoliosis? To find out the role of vision role in scoliosis, a study was undertaken in France, whereby teens with visual deficiency were screened for scoliosis and the subjects were then compared with kids with normal vision. The findings
I just wanted to highlight your attention to the great discussion 'SpineCor vs Rigid Brace' that has been going on in the forum side with regards to ‘The effect of rigid versus flexible spinal orthosis on the clinical efficacy and acceptance of the patients with adolescent idiopathic scoliosis‘ study.
There seems to be some controversy when it comes to this paper. Please join in the discussion and share your views about the topic.
It is well known that the human spine has coupled motion when it rotates. Now, what do I mean by that?
When the human spine rotates it also bends sideways at the same time, and that phenomenon is called coupled motion. What happens in the normal spine is that, when we bend our lumbar spine to the right it also rotates counter clockwise, causing it to stay in the right position i.e the spinous processes pointing to the concavity of the lumbar spine. Interestingly, the opposite occurs
To follow up on my previous blog post “Scoliosis Surgery – Is it a cure?“, I had to write this after reading this a paper  stating the following.
“It is very difficult to know precisely what the natural history of untreated surgical idiopathic scoliosis is, because most patients have surgical treatment of their curves when the Cobb measurement exceeds 50°. The only way of definitively proving that the natural history of surgical treatment of idiopathic scoliosis is better than
Some insist that surgery is a cure to Adolescent Idiopathic Scoliosis (AIS). Personally, I believe saying that surgery is a cure for scoliosis is equivalent to saying that insulin is a cure for Type 1diabetes. Insulin will merely keep this category of diabetics alive, but does not correct or rid these individuals of their condition. The underlying problem for a Type 1 diabetic is that the cells which produce insulin in their body are dead, hence by administering insulin, you are merely “managing”
