Abstract

STUDY DESIGN:

Literature review.

SETTING:

Europe with special reference to France.

OBJECTIVES:

To describe the first known orthopaedic rehabilitation units founded in France in the first half of the nineteenth century for the treatment of spinal curvature and deformity and analyse their impact on the future provision of rehabilitation treatment in Europe.

CONCLUSION:

Despite the pioneering work of a few French orthopaedic surgeons and doctors, no long-lasting legacy remains from the establishment of innovative and holistic institutes for the treatment of spinal curvature and deformity as early as the 1830 s.
