Despite the development of medicine, scoliosis – a curvature of the thoracic spine, is diagnosed in people of different ages more and more often. It is particularly sad to see so many children among orthopedists.
Scoliosis can be caused by a sedentary lifestyle and excessive stress on the spine column.
The treatment of spinal curvature is complicated and takes a long time. Prevention will help prevent this disease and maintain correct posture for life. If the problem has already arisen, patients are awaited at the medical diagnostic center « Meddiagnostika » in Kiev. Reception is conducted by experienced specialists, including therapists, orthopedists, surgeons and neuropathologists.
Childhood scoliosis: Causes and consequences
Although the spine of the child has not been strengthened yet, it reacts immediately to any factors that could cause its curvature.
Too soft bed
Being in a bad position for too long, which can be facilitated by sitting at a computer.
You can also practice weightlifting and other sports.
Furniture for homework that has been incorrectly chosen
ignoring daily gymnastics;
These factors can cause scoliosis grades 1 through 4. Scoliosis is more than poor posture. An irregular spine shape can lead to dysfunction in the thoracic area’s organs.
The consequence of childhood scoliosis can be serious pathological changes in the heart and lungs.
Prevention of scoliosis in children
Preventing scoliotic posture in children starts even before they are born. The expectant mother should eat right, avoid overwork, lead an active lifestyle and perform daily exercises, the complex of which will be made by a doctor who is observing the pregnant woman.
The baby needs movement from the first birthday. Simple exercises for newborns are repeated several times a day for 5 minutes.
You can not sit a baby until he can sit by himself, without support. If the baby can sit independently, this means that his spine has already been properly formed.
The newborn needs daily walks in the fresh air, during which he receives vitamin D, which is involved in the formation of the musculoskeletal system.
The baby’s crib must have an orthopedic mattress. A pillow is not necessary for newborns. Older children should have it, but low.
If the child slouches slightly, it is the responsibility of the parents to remind him to keep his back straight.
The workplace of the student is equipped taking into account the growth of the student. The height of the seat should be such that the child’s feet rest on the floor or on a special support under the table. In terms of height, the table and chair should match.
For going to school, it is better to purchase a satchel with two straps, rather than a briefcase.
Doing homework should be alternated with rest and light exercise.
Prevention of spinal curvature in adults
Adults should have a healthy lifestyle and exercise regularly to prevent scoliosis. Sedentary work requires breaks during which a person does light gymnastics or just walks. The workplace should be equipped with comfort. Sitting in a bad position can lead to scoliosis or early osteochondrosis.
The diet of an adult should contain fruits, vegetables, and other foods rich in vitamins and microelements. It is important to get out in the fresh air each day, and that you sleep on an orthopedic mattress.
Your doctor should be notified immediately if you feel any signs of scoliosis, or pain in the spine.
