The purpose is to evaluate the effectiveness of complex treatment of grade I scoliosis in children on an inclined plane. Material and methods. Throughout 2021, 42 children with degree I scoliosis aged from 8 to 13 years old (average age 10.5 years) were under observation. All patients with degree I scoliotic disease were prescribed complex treatment, which included personalized kinesitherapy on an inclined plane (Evminov's board), massage, electrical stimulation of the back muscles, and

Two groups of patients were identified: Group I – children with grade I scoliosis before treatment (42 persons) and Group II – children with grade I scoliosis in the process of treatment (37 persons). Re-examination was carried out 4-5 months after the start of the course. Results. 45.2 % of children in Group I had complaints of cerebroasthenic nature, which remained in only 12 % of patients in Group II. No clinical signs of hypocalcemia were revealed in the examined children during the initial and repeated laboratory examination. When analyzing the indicators of ultrasound densitometry, 14.3 % of children in Group I had initial signs of osteopenia (Z-Score); 25-hydroxycalciferol was at the lower limit of the normative values in children before the start of treatment. Regression of scoliosis was noted in 80.9 % of children of Group II, according to X-ray data, in 3 patients of this group there was a stable clinical and instrumental picture. Conclusions. The application of an inclined plane for children in the treatment of degree I scoliosis gives a positive result – regression of the spinal deformity. The results indicate the need to develop medical and social programs for the prevention and treatment of degree I scoliotic deformity of the spine in children in general educational institutions at physical education lessons. Key words: children, degree 1 scoliosis, inclined plane, kinesitherapy, radiography, densitometry.
