How to properly massage a child with scoliosis
Scoliosis is the curvature of the spine in one or the other side of the arc or its twisting. The problem of scoliosis in children is relevant at any time, because the condition of the spine depends on the lifestyle and degree of activity of the child. Rare walks, long time at the computer, improper position of the body at the desk, watch TV watching – the muscles weaken, not getting the necessary load, so they lose the ability to keep the spine in a normal position. A negative contribution to the development of this disease makes poor nutrition, scoliosis often develops against the background of a lack and a violation of the metabolism of phosphorus and calcium.To date, the disease is considered very common, at the age of 5 years, this problem is observed in one in ten children, and by the age of 16, half of adolescents suffer from scoliosis.
Curvature of the spine is not only an aesthetic problem, with the progression of the disease, blood circulation worsens, breathing difficulties occur, and the risk of disability significantly increases due to severe disfiguration of the spinal column.
