Diagnosis and therapy of scoliosis according to the FITS Method
Based on years of experience and numerous studies and discussions among scientists: orthopedic physicians, biomechanists, physiotherapists and psychologists, the FITS Method is constantly being developed and presented at numerous scientific conferences both in Poland and abroad.
Based on the result of the clinical examination according to the FITS method, curvature parameters and dysfunctions accompanying scoliosis, general and specific goals are set and an individual exercise program is adjusted.
Therapy with children is based on performing asymmetrical exercises, muscle energization techniques, fascial techniques, trigger point therapy, neuromobilization, cranio-sacral therapy, joint mobilization of the spine and limbs, and specialized strength training using closed chains.
Important elements of the FITS method include educating the patient, making him aware of the basic aspects of scoliosis, and learning how to correct and perform the exercises correctly at home. The child and parent are trained to perform the exercises so that the therapy can also be continued at home.
