Welcome to the website of the FITS Method (Functional Individual Therapy of Scoliosis), that we are the authors. It is recognized and recommended by the International Society on Scoliosis Orthopedic and Rehabilitation Treatment. FITS was established in 2004 for the treatment of children, adolescents and adults with scoliosis, postural defects and Scheuermann’s disease. The Method was presented at conferences and workshops in Poland and abroad (Boston, Athens, Lyon, Barcelona, Milan, Wiesbaden, Dubrovnik). The results of scoliosis treatment have been published in the Scoliosis Journal and Medicine.
Our method is recognized and recommended by the International Society on Scoliosis Orthopaedic and Rehabilitation Treatment (SOSORT) for the treatment of children with scoliosis.
Therapy and exercises are determined for each patient individually after a detailed posture examination, depending on the child’s age, angle of curvatures, number of curves and asymmetries finding during the posture examination.
An element of our method is the selection and learning of individually adjusted exercises for each patient with the recommendation of maximum precision during their performance.
We explain an existing spine defect in an X-ray. We discuss scoliosis on the model of the spine and we use biofeedback so that the child can see his figure (also from the back and in forward bending ).
Awareness and learning to maintain the correct sitting and standing position during everyday activities.
Improving body posture as a result of systematic, individually adapted therapy and precise performance of home exercises.
