Abstract

The aim of the study is to frame the use of Isocapnic Hyperpnea in the treatment of different spine paramorphisms through the use of SpiroTiger©. Several studies in recent years are increasingly looking for the current correlations between the respiratory musculature and the Fine Postural System. Based on this consideration, we decided to use respiratory exercise to induce a considerable modification of postural alignment. To provide meaningful data, we associated an objective baseline assessment with an objective assessment using spinometry. Four subjects are identified, undergoing an initial objective assessment of posture and spinometry (Spinal mouse M360©) who, after having carried out Respiratory Training with SpiroTiger© and postural gymnastics, were followed-up between the 5th and 8th sessions. The first two cases had postural alterations (lumbar hyperlordosis and dorsal cyphosis) while the assessment of the other subjects showed no postural deficits in the upright station. However, during anterior bending and/or the extension of the trunk in maximum inhalation, there were joint limitations that reduced the Range of Motion (ROM). Although the subjects examined had different Paramorphisms, the final assessment shows in all cases an increase in the ROM of the spine (bending=6-12°/extension=2°), better postural alignment resulting in a reduction in algies.
