ABSTRACT
The article presents studies which compared mechanical traction and stretching in rehabilitation of idiopathic scoliosis patients. The study employs fingertip-floor test, physiotherapy methods , and bracing. Results reveal that stretching exercises led to improvement in the Cobb's angle and resulted in enhancement of scoliotic curves in moderate sciliotic patients.
