For over 10 years now, we had dealt with the correction of patients with different varieties and degrees of scoliosis with the help of Chéneau Corset active corrective corsets.
Lying at the foundation of the construction are individually manufactured plastic corsets, which have various curves (zones) responsible for load placement and removal off the spine.
The plastic curves create pressure and pressure removal zones. The pressure zones (so-called pelottes) do not allow the curves to grow and straight them out little by little during active breathing and movement. The load removal zones create free space to straighten out the parts of the body bent inward. In order to achieve more significant results, along with the use of the corset, the individual breathing gymnastics of Catherine Schroth is produced, where the patient is helped to produce the habit of breathing and moving in such a way that the treatment process is as effective as possible. Over the past decades, technology in the diagnostics and manufacturing of corsets has improved and currently, it is, without a doubt, the safest and most effective method for treating scoliosis. The corset allows the patient to move around and keep the lifestyle that he or she is accustomed to, more importantly providing a means to postpone, reduce, and even replace probable surgery in the event of severe cases of the illness! Today, therapy with the help of active correction of rigid corsets is an actual standard for helping scoliosis patients in many countries and is the leading recommendation in the event of scoliosis all over the world.
