Abstract

We use side-shift exercise and hitch exercise for the treatment of idiopathic scoliosis. Outcomes of side-shift exercise used for the curves after skeletal maturity or used in combination with part-time brace wearing treatment are better than the natural history. Side-shift exercise and hitch exercise are useful treatment option for idiopathic scoliosis.
