There has been some particular insight that has recently been given into the aspect of the immediate effects of scoliosis specific corrective exercises on the Cobb angle just after one week and a year of practice in particular. However in more detail when it comes to this aspect we are unaware of any studies that describe the effects of the specific exercises.
- This study aimed to describe the differences between radiographs obtained with and without corrective exercises after initial training and after one year.
- At 6 months, her lumbar and thoracic curves measured 41o and 28o, respectively.
- After initial training, corrective exercises during a standing x-ray did not significantly improve the Cobb angle for the major lumbar curve compared to the relaxed standing x-ray.
“The immediate effect of corrective exercises after a year of training was a 33 % improvement at the lumbar spine compared to only a 9 % improvement the previous year.”
