Abstract

SEAS is an acronym for "Scientific Exercises Approach to Scoliosis". Main characteristics of SEAS are team approach and cognitive-behavioural approach because in our view these are two indispensable elements in chronic disease rehabilitation. In this article we describe the main differences between SEAS approach and other exercise techniques as well as theoretical bases and therapeutic goals. We illustrate practical application of SEAS concept and scientific results in order to reduce the patient's progress of scoliosis so that a brace would be needed. When compared to usual care, improvement of scoliosis parameters and balance normalization in scoliosis patients.
