The most critical period for the development of the spine in children are going to school and entering puberty. Then the most commonly occurring problems, doctors warn.
The most common problems with the spine in children have scoliosis (curvature of the spine to the side, usually in the form of the letter C) or double scoliosis (like the letter S), kyphosis (stoop, when the shoulder belt and the spine in the thorax, bent forward) and lordosis (exaggerated curvature in the lumbar region, i.e. sacral spine).
For the most successful treatment is early detection. If the weather does not react poor posture over time can cause structural or static deformities that are more difficult to correct certain exercises and reduces the possibility of complete resolution of the problem.
In addition to bad aesthetic appearance, it is more important to say that our internal organs are adequate position. And because of deformities that can cause internal pressure often occur problems with breathing, heart beat and pain. It’s never too early to check the condition of the spine of the child, even if it is the way a little bit.
The child should be monitored from birth, especially when you walk. Factors that influence the occurrence of spinal deformity are not just poor posture, obesity, heavy school bag, physical inactivity, but also flat feet, or inwards, incorrectly treated torticollis in infants, and other musculoskeletal problems.
Exercises for a minimum of ages
The most intense period of development, between the fourth and tenth year, children should not opt for a single sport. It is recommended to first learn complex skills, establishing a good balance and coordination, muscle balance and fine motor skills, and it’s all very difficult to achieve if you are working on it after puberty.
Correct dosed, exactly performed exercises definitely affect the proper development and growth of the child, to increase muscle strength and flexibility, but it will lead to solving the problem. Sport a positive effect on a child’s development, however, not every sport for every child.
It should take into account the situation that prevails in the sport because some sports may lead to the creation or improvement of deformity. Basketball is not good for children where there is a predisposition to create kyphosis. Ballet and rhythmic gymnastics are not recommended for children with increased lordosis. Single sided sports such as tennis are not good for children with scoliosis.
