HSS spring - kyphosis & NDT

  1. how many degrees of post curve of thoracic spine do you need for it to be called kyphosis
  2. what is Scheuremann's disease?
    • growth disturbance anteriorly in thoracic vert
    • a least 3 adjacent vert bodies are wedging anteriorly at the apex
  3. which brace is most often used for kyphosis
  4. when would kyphosis warrent surgery
    • severe deformities
    • neurological compromise
    • disabling pain
  5. 8 traits of kyphosis
    • increased kyphosis
    • forward head
    • protracted scapula
    • restricted shoulder flexion
    • swayback
    • increase lumbar lordosis
    • short muscles on concave side
    • long muscles on convex side
  6. long/weak muscles to strengthen in kyphosis
    • cervical spine flexor
    • eretor spinae
    • middle traps
    • rhomboids
    • abs
    • glut max
  7. 5 muscles that are shortened in kyphosis
    • cervical exensors
    • pec M and m
    • intercostals
    • hamstrings
  8. NDT - 3 types of touch
    • light - tests for temp and hydration, uses full hand contact, moves skin slowly over lower layer
    • mod pressure - sink a bit deeper to feel muscle and connective tissue
    • deep - sink in and feel bone
  9. prone --> long sit
    • put hands under shoulders to bring pt to forearms
    • then, hand on pec, hand on abs, rotate pt 180 up to long sit (roll towards side w hand on pec)
  10. long sit --> quad
    • PT in half kneel
    • hand under pt's arm n her pecs on side she's rolling to, other hand on abs
    • then twist/roll??
  11. quad --> tall kneel
    hands on bs and glut, wt shift post and up
  12. tall kneel --> half kneel on R foot
    • lean L in post-diagonal, raise R foot, then bring BOS back to R
    • hand on R pec and L gluts
  13. half kneel --> stand
    • stand in front of pt
    • grab humeruses and do ER, pulling up ant and diag over the standing leg

    for less stable kid, go behind, put hands on abs, guide up and forward
