A dynamic implanted spinal orthosis which preserves at least in part the natural physiological mobility of the vertebrae while effecting and maintaining a correction of the relative positions of the vertebrae without osteosynthesis, graft or fusion, comprising anchoring components fixed to the vertebrae and holding means associated with the anchoring components for holding the vertebrae with respect to each other in the corrected position, the holding means comprise an elastic return device for exerting elastic return forces, the orientation and magnitude of which are determined for holding the vertebrae in the corrected position against natural deforming forces for reducing the forces exerted on the vertebrae while preserving their mobility; also a procedure for maintaining a correction of the positions of the vertebrae for treating a deformation of the spine.
