Scoliosis is one of the most dangerous and prevalent spinal deformities. In recent years, due to general environmental degradation, increasing the proportion of mental work and increase in inactivity, A significant increase in the number of patients with scoliosis. Scoliosis is a lateral curvature of the spine, often complicated by the development of multiple arcs of curvature, rotation spine on its axis, changes in the shape of vertebrae. We must distinguish a form of scoliosis and spinal scoliosis, one of the outward manifestations of which is the actual scoliosis. With the development of scoliosis may not only change in the structure of bone tissue, but significant skeletal deformities as a whole, leading to compression of internal organs, blood vessels and nerves. Such skeletal deformities often provoke the development of cardiovascular, pulmonary and neurological diseases. Treatment of scoliosis depends on the severity of the disease and the patient's age.
In the period before the end of skeletal growth in the treatment of scoliosis is used conservative methods. Much of these methods is bracing and supporting character: it's therapeutic exercises, massage, therapeutic swimming, physiotherapy. One of the more recently developing methods Conservative treatment of scoliosis is korsetoterapiya. Corsets are as passive support and active-correcting, the latter is the so-called Chenault corset. Corset Chenault was developed in France in the 70s of the past century. Since then he has continuously improved and have now been proven to be effective and considered the best treatment for scoliosis for many categories of patients. The operating principle of the corset is Chenot dosed strictly calculated mechanical stress at the convex parts of the deformed bone structures sick. As a result of the prolonged use of a corset is a gradual decrease in deformation.
Such method of treatment is effective not only for correction of scoliosis children and youth, it gives the cosmetic results and for adults. Until recently, the method korsetolechenie Chenault only developed abroad, mainly in Germany and France. However, since 2002, Chenault corsets are made in Russia. In the State Center for medical and social assessment and rehabilitation to them. Albrecht of St. Petersburg was established site ortezirovaniya for the production and use of modern orthoses, including corsets and Chenault. Specialists Center. Albrecht developed a standard for the manufacture of corsets and certify its use in Russian Federation. Over the past few years, doctors have been made the center more than 400 corsets. In 2008, the work of the center and praised the quality of made corsets confirmed the inventor of the method – J. Chenault. It should however remember that the treatment of scoliosis – a long and laborious work together physician and patient. Nevertheless, the corset gives Chenot one of the few chances for full correction of scoliosis or significant improvement of the patient.
