  Title Kyphoscoliosis improvement while treating a patient for adhesive capsulitis using the active therapeutic movement version 2 [case report]
Journal J Manipulative Physiol Ther. 2008 Nov-Dec;31(9):715-722
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Case Report
Abstract/Notes OBJECTIVE: This article presents a case report illustrating an improvement in the curvature of idiopathic scoliosis as a secondary benefit from treatment of adhesive capsulitis with an active therapeutic movement (ATM) device.

CLINICAL FEATURES: The patient was a 55-year-old school teacher who was referred to physical therapy for adhesive capsulitis. It was determined that part of the patient's limited shoulder range of motion was due to her significant kyphoscoliosis posture, which resulted in decreased mobility of her thoracic spine.

INTERVENTION AND OUTCOME: The patient was treated with an ATM device as a means to help mobilize her thoracic spine. The patient completed several weeks of therapy, which consisted of using the ATM exclusively. The patient gained near-normal range of motion in both arms and had improvement in her kyphoscoliosis posture.

CONCLUSION: A nonsurgical treatment was a useful intervention for some of the physical and psychosocial aspects that this patient with kyphoscoliosis encountered.
