[automatically translated] Scoliosis is defined as a permanent lateral curvature of the spine, which is accompanied by anatomical changes of the vertebrae and other trunk support structures. The Scoliosis Research Society defines scoliosis as a curve (> 10 degrees Cobb) on the frontal plane which is manifested by an inclination side, which involves the removal of a number of vertebrae from the midline; this modification gives rise to a lateral curve, characterized by an apex, the apex being the most deviated vertebra from 'median axis, and by neutral vertebrae or vertebrae limit, at the ends of the curve, where the intervertebral joints back towards the midline (points repere from which you can measure the degrees of scoliosis Cobb). In 70-80% of cases, scoliosis is called idiopathic (ie unknown cause) although it can be assumed as the cause of the presence of small alterations of 'growth of the vertebrae and / or the failure of capsulolegamentoso spinal system and / or' failure or imbalance of the paraspinal musculature. It 'important to make a distinction between scoliosis, also called paramorphism and structured scoliosis (deformity) as the former is considered a' functional impairment of the upright which has the characteristic of not being structured and thus reducible. Scoliosis in attitudes and in the so-called minor scoliosis, with curves in the frontal plane of less than 20 ° Cobb, representing the greatest number of the spine deviations are indicated programs that provide for the monitoring and containment of the curves and their evolutivity and wherein the knowledge and the application of the motor gesture is fundamental. The engines gestures to learn to program 's intervention and to apply them in cases of minor scoliosis are the exercises that concern the awareness of your body, control and organization of the respiratory system, the extension of the exercises in self-lengthening column, the column of suspension-traction with the aid of the back and the asymmetrical and symmetrical exercises of mobilization.
