PubMed Commons is an experimental system of commenting on PubMed abstracts, introduced in October 2013. Comments are displayed on the abstract page, but during the initial closed pilot, only registered users can read or post comments. Any researcher who is listed as an author of an article indexed by PubMed is entitled to participate in the pilot. If you would like to participate and need an invitation, please email info@biomedcentral.com, giving the PubMed ID of an article on which you are an author.

Rotational strength weakness in rotations to the concave side in patients with idiopathic scoliosis

Re Rotational strength weakness in rotations to the concave side in patients with idiopathic scoliosis - my research suggests that the muscular weakness is secondary to the postural distortons resulting from abnormal foot motion. We have demonstrated, using Formetric Studies, that proprioceptive insoles reverse the spinal distortions observed in Scoliotic children. The muscular weakness autocorrects as the postural distortions are reversed - See http://www.rothbartsfoot.info/3DFormetrikStudy.html
