Abstract
INTRODUCTION: Idiopathic scoliosis is that kind of structural deformation, for which there was no reasonable cause based on the temporary level of science. The conservative treatment of the idiopathic scoliosis is based on a rigid brace. The aim of the study is to establish if Cheneau brace decreases exercise capacity in adolescent patients with mild idiopathic scoliosis.
MATERIAL AND METHODS: The research was done in 31 girls aged 11 to 18 years with diagnosed idiopathic adolescent scoliosis. These patients were qualified to conservative treatment with using Cheneau brace.
RESULTS: Exercise test with using cycle ergometer proved hightly statistically significant greater end workload at girls without using Cheneau brace in comparison to girls which used Cheneau brace. The study showed also the statistically significant longer distance of the walking test, which was made by patients without direct correction of Cheneau’s brace in comparison to patients with direct correction of Cheneau’s brace.
CONCLUSIONS: The initially study showed, that Chenau brace essentially diminishes exercice capacity at patients with idiopathic adolescent scoliosis.
