Current concepts of SEAS (Scientific Exercise Approach to Scoliosis): Adolescent Idiopathic scoliosis (AIS)
Author: Mudasir Rashid Baba1, Ravindra Mohan Shenoy2, Ajith Soman3
Adolescent Idiopathic scoliosis (AIS) is a habitual curvature of spine with unknown aetiology with an approximately of 5% of incidence rate. Prevalence ratio in females is well known. Literature reports have tried to explain the Prevalence in selected populations, possible ways of legacy, related to nutritional deficiency, environmental stress and over physical stress which may be a character for the evolution to the irregularity of the spine. SEAS “Scientific Exercise Approach to Scoliosis”, is a potent modern neurophysiologic approach designed to stimulate the reflex and to improve the functioning of spinal musculature. It is employed in idiopathic scoliosis with low-medium degree curves below 200 during growth attempting to minimize the progression of Cobb angle. The mean of this paper is to review and update concepts of determined self-correction approach carried out without external aid in group settings with the assistance of trained family members and teachers.
