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 especially sad that there are many children among the patients of the orthopedist.
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. Patients who have already been diagnosed with the disease are welcome to visit the Kiev-based medical diagnostic center Meddiagnostika. Experienced specialists such as surgeons, neuropathologists, orthopedists and therapists handle the reception.
Childhood scoliosis: Causes and consequences
The child's spine, which has not yet been strengthened, instantly reacts to all factors, the presence of which can provoke 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.
Childhood scoliosis may lead to serious heart and lungs problems.
Prevention of scoliosis in children
Preventing scoliotic posture in children starts even before they are born. A doctor will advise the expectant mother to eat well, not overwork, exercise daily and live a healthy lifestyle.
The baby needs movement from the first birthday. Simple exercises for newborns are repeated several times a day for 5 minutes.
A baby can't be sat until he is able to sit on his own without assistance. If the baby independently assumes a sitting position, it means that his spine is already sufficiently formed for this.
Every day, the newborn must take a walk in the fresh air. Vitamin D is essential for the development of the musculoskeletal system.
An orthopedic mattress must be used in the baby's crib. A pillow is not necessary for newborns. Older children should have it, but low.
Parents are responsible for reminding their child to straighten his spine if he slouches.
The student's growth is taken into consideration when designing the workplace. The seat must be high enough that the child's feet are supported on the floor, or under the table. The table and chair must match each other in terms of height.
For going to school, it is better to purchase a satchel with two straps, rather than a briefcase.
It is best to alternate homework with light exercise and rest.
Prevention of spinal curvature in adults
Adults should have a healthy lifestyle and exercise regularly to prevent scoliosis. Breaks during sedentary work require that a person do light gymnastics, or simply walk. Comfort should be a priority in the workplace. 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. You need to sleep on an orthopedic mattress, take walks in the fresh air every day.
At the first sign of scoliosis or spinal pain, make an appointment with your doctor immediately.
