Background: Efficient variants of scoliosis correction should be applied maximally early, as soon as its first symptoms are detected. One of such variants is daily wearing of medioprophylactic clothes (MPC). At the same time, dynamics of morphological and functional characteristics of locomotor apparatus in 5-6-year old children with scoliosis against the background of their daily wearing of MPC is still studied rather poorly.
Method: Dynamic indices of locomotor apparatus of 5-6-year old children with scoliosis of I-II degree who wore Â author-designed MPC daily for 6 months were tracked.
Results: Examination of 5-6-year old children with scoliosis of I-II degree was noted to have typical manifestations of physical development inhibition in their initial state such as lowered somatometric indices, decreased body muscle strength, lowered tolerance level, and reduced spinal mobility. Conclusion. Daily MPC wearing for half a year provided children with scoliosis evidence of lower spinal curvature, an increase in body muscle strength, and a closer tolerance of relevant indices to control values.
