LYON METHOD MASTER COURSE CERTIFICATION

THE LYON APPROACH

 

The Lyon school of physiotherapy for scoliosis, managed by Dr. Jean Claude de Mauroy, the head of the orthopedic medicine department at Clinique du Parc, Lyon, France, is one of the oldest physiotherapy schools in France and one of the first schools to be integrated into the Faculty of Medicine program in Lyon. Physiotherapy is an integral part of the Lyon approach to the management of scoliosis in conjunction with casting and bracing.

The Lyon method traditionally combined PSSE with the Lyon brace and casting, and more recently has combined PSSE with bracing alone in the form of the new Lyon ARTbrace (Asymmetrical Rigid Torsion brace). Physiotherapeutic treatment includes 3D mobilization of the spine, mobilization of the ilio-lumbar angle (lumbar scoliosis), patient education, and activities of daily living, including correction of the sitting position.

Lyon Method Educators

In 1973, Dr. de Mauroy was still a medical student at the “Centre des Massues”, world famous for scoliosis treatment. He met Dr. Stagnara who entrusted him with his thesis on infantile scoliosis. MD in 1975, he became head of a department of 36 beds for paediatric orthopaedics.

With Dr. Stagnara, Dr. de Mauroy co-founded the Outpatient and Documentation department of the Centre des Massues. When Dr. Stagnara retired, he created with his successor Dr Picault, the European Spine Center at the Clinique du Parc.

Dr. de Mauroy is retired lecturer at the University Claude Bernard.
