SCOPE OF ORTHOTIC MANAGEMENT FOR ADOLESCENT IDIOPATHIC SCOLIOSIS IN DEVELOPING COUNTRIES- A narrative review
Author(s):

Keywords:
Adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS) is one of the most common spinal deformities in this era. The term scoliosis refers to a three-dimensional deformity resulting in an abnormal lateral deviation in the axis of a person's spine. By definition, adolescent idiopathic scoliosis is the lateral curvature of the spine exceeding about 10oof Cobb’s angle occurring in late childhood or adolescent age (above 10 years of age) until skeletal maturity1. The affected spine will be subjected to lateral deviation accompanied by vertebral rotation within the curvature. Need of the study: - Orthotic management has a dominant role in the non – operative treatment of adolescent idiopathic scoliosis, with the availability of a huge variety of braces. But it is observed that in the developing counties there is a lack of awareness, knowledge, and skill about the myriad types of braces in the service provision as well as in the prosthetic and orthotic (P & O) education.

Abstract
Adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS) is one of the most common spinal deformities in this era. The term scoliosis refers to a three-dimensional deformity resulting in an abnormal lateral deviation in the axis of a person's spine. By definition, adolescent idiopathic scoliosis is the lateral curvature of the spine exceeding about 10oof Cobb’s angle occurring in late childhood or adolescent age (above 10 years of age) until skeletal maturity1. The affected spine will be subjected to lateral deviation accompanied by vertebral rotation within the curvature. Orthotic management has a dominant role in the non – operative treatment of adolescent idiopathic scoliosis, with the availability of a huge variety of braces. But it is observed that in the developing counties there is a lack of awareness, knowledge, and skill about the myriad types of braces in the service provision as well as in the prosthetic and orthotic (P & O) education. Considering this as a fundamental need, a narrative review has been conducted to craft a detailed review on globally available design concepts to enlighten students as well as P and O practitioners in developing countries. Create awareness of the scope of orthotic management in AIS among p &o students and clinicians of developing countries. Narrative review - Method, This readily available resource material will assist the P&O professionals in making the appropriate prescription. Also, this article will address the issues in identifying the material and technology selection for the orthotic intervention of AIS.
