Recovery Following a Posterior Hemivertebrectomy through Swimming and Schroth Therapy
This present study was run during 21.06.2018 – 20.02.2019 and aims to present a program for the recovery of cifoscolysis caused by the presence of a thoracic hemivertebre, remuoved by surgery at PONDERAS Academic Hospital from Bucharest.The imaging performed before the surgery (Rx, CT, MRI) show the following: the left T10 hemivertebra is completely segmented by a posterior quadrant, with a secondary Cobb T9-T11=46 degrees scoliosis, T12-L4=50 degrees; right vertebral pedicle T9 type D; no medullary or posterior pit anomalies. The pacient aged 14, performs the regular medical check-up at Recover Bucharest, and the actual recovery by using the Schroth technique at OrtoprofilTirguMures, and through swimming at Aqua per Salus within the University of Medicine, Pharmacy, Sciences and Technology from TirguMures. During this present study, we used the method of observation through the interpretation of the full spine MRI performed every 3 months following the first period of 6 weeks when the first post-surgery control was performed. At the 20th week of surgery, there was a correction of scoliosis T12-L4 by 4 degrees to scoliosis before surgery. Through Schrothtehnic specific exercises and Brass and Back swimming, in the next 28 weeks a T8-T12 junctionacifosis was corected 5 degrees from previous examination.
