Spiral stabilization

Spiral stabilization is a unique rehabilitation method that has been developed by Dr. Smíšek since 1979. It is based on exercising muscle chains, improving posture and strengthening the core muscles so that muscular harmony and symmetry are restored. The principle of this method is that spiral muscle chains stretch the body and spine upwards during exercise. As a result, the vertebrae expand from each other and the pressure on the intervertebral discs and joints is reduced so, which enables their nutrition, regeneration and treatment.


Scoliosis in the child population
