One of the diseases, which is considered a serious problem of the XXI century, is scoliosis, while it affects both adults and young people and children.
This is not surprising, because with the advent of the Internet most of the free time many people spend sitting at the computer, and do not always keep a correct posture.
According to statistics, almost half of the inhabitants of our planet have such a diagnosis as the curvature of the spine. In some cases, when a person does not feel any symptoms of the disease, treatment is not required.
But if it is in a neglected stage, it can negatively affect the work of the internal organs, and even be outwardly visible in the form of deformation of the thoracic region, which spoils the appearance, not to mention the pain and discomfort. Most often, scoliosis appears in childhood, when the skeleton of a child is growing rapidly, and, most often, this applies to toddlers of kindergarten age, as well as primary school pupils.
Preventing such a Disease in Children
To prevent a child from such a disease, it is necessary to take preventive measures. To do this, you should monitor the position of the child’s back when sitting at a table or school desk, because he is not allowed to stoop and hunch. An important factor is a properly selected backpack, which is also often the cause of the disease.
According to doctors, the best option will be an orthopedic knapsack, which, thanks to its forms, evenly distributes the load on the back.
It is also necessary to select the correct desk, given that sitting behind it, the distance from the surface to the head of the student should be at least thirty centimeters. Make sure that the child is as active as possible, for which you write it in sports sections, while it is desirable that he chose the sport. A good prophylaxis of scoliosis are specially designed exercise complexes that must be performed in the morning. In order for the child to feel comfortable during sleep, lay down an orthopedic mattress and pillow to protect the cervical vertebrae.
