A novel technique is offered for correction of postural defects and early manifestations of scoliosis in schoolchildren using methods of functional biofeedback training. The technique allowed the patient to use the biofeedback signals informing on the degree of asymmetry in bioelectric activity of paravertebral muscles in static active straightening of the vertebral column. The data revealed a steady decrease in asymmetric activity indices in muscles erecting the column. This provided a physiological basis for a high clinical efficiency of the technique.
