What is scoliosis
Among the violations of the posture, the leading place occupies scoliosis - lateral deviation
spine from the middle line. This is the most common orthopedic
The disease is observed almost every twentieth child. This is a disease
Today it is considered incurable, but you can avoid further development,
For this you need to start treatment as early as possible.
Scoliosis can be congenital and acquired.
The causes of the acquired scoliosis may be such diseases as:
Poliomyelitis, Child cerebral paralysis, transfer of a number of infections, weakness
muscles, shortening one limb, wrong position of the body, he
may arise due to various developmental anomalies - as a result of Rahita,
hypotrophy, one-sided flatfoot, congenital hip dislocation.
Do not hope that with age everything will pass. Wrong load
on the spine, even with a weak degree of scoliosis can lead to education
Intervertebral hernia, disk falling, sufficiently strong pain and numbness
Scoliosis proceeds adversely in relevant children, with a violation of exchange
processes, with the weakness of the spinal binder apparatus and joints. Weak
Physical development of a child in which the function is not fully full
The muscles of the back and abdomen also leads to adverse course of the disease.
Danger can be that parents want to sit down before
child, make him walk, although most often the spine to this yet
not ready. Every child has it individually. Approximately 2-3
months baby begins to pull up, 5-7 months sits down, and from 9 months
Begins to walk. But this is average. And if you have a child at 7 months
does not sit, and at 10 months does not try to walk (provided that the cause
is not any serious illness) should not rush it, better
Spend a sliding massage course, to raise muscle tone, do
Together with the child, gymnastics, focusing on the muscles of the back. From side
parents should not be imposed. Can be in the crib or manneva
hang bright toys so that the child can pull up
Or, when he only learns to crawl, move away toys away from him,
Let him be trying to reach. And he does it gradually, as you
In early preschool age, the spine grows intensively, but the muscles
do not have time for him, the muscular corset is not yet developed. And if the child is initially
there were violations in the musculoskeletal apparatus, most often the disease can
be provoked by the wrong landing at the table, not by age selected
furniture and, most importantly, the lack of physical training.
If in kindergarten the percentage of the disease is low, then in school it begins
progress. Moreover, there is a significant rejuvenation of the disease.
If earlier the disease was noted in children from 12-13 years old, now increasingly
occurs in 7-8-pilots. And if you do not take any measures, then before
school graduation a child can be disabled.
The pressure on the spine sitting more than standing. Therefore it is impossible to load
Child additional classes that require a long stay
at the table.
A large place in the treatment of scoliosis occupy massage and therapeutic gymnastics
- To increase the muscle tone and the formation of a muscular corset. Methodik
Therapeutic gymnastics is aimed at unloading the spine, increasing it
Sustainability, restoration of the balance between curvatures of scoliosis - with one
The sides of the spine (from the curvature) is made tonic massage
T.To. Muscles from this side are weak, on the other hand relaxing as well
on the provision of a secreting action on the child's body.
When scoliosis, massage is not a panacea. But in comprehensive treatment for him
Great value is paid. For infants for prevention, he
Plays a decisive role. Upon massage use intakes of kneading, rubbing
muscles along the spinal column, making the same pressure with one and another
sides of the spine. If scoliosis is in the initial stage, applies
Such a massage technique: from scoliosis where the ribsy protrusion is formed
Muscles are thin, weak, here need active enhanced massage using
kneading, rubbing, strong vibration. From the opposite side where
Muscles on the contrary are tense, relaxing massage is done, use deep
Slow strokes, smooth stretching, light vibration. After that
Made a general relaxing massage of the whole back. Then on the same scheme do
Massage of chest. Session time 20-30 minutes, treatment course
15-20 procedures, periodicity of 1 times in 2 months, while gymnastics interruptions
better not to do. At the age of the child more than a year, massage and gymnastics
It is hardly possible to get rid.
Unfortunately, sometimes described above conservative treatment does not bring
No results arise about surgical intervention. Operation
Heavy and expensive. But the operation does not give 100% warranty - after some
time is possible partial loss of correction.
Therefore, it is much better to deal with the prevention of scoliosis than its treatment.
Adults must follow the habits of their children to hurt, to keep
shoulders and pelvis, wrong sit at the table. Try to provide them with the necessary
Conditions: The bed must be selected by the growth of the child, the mattress should
to be smooth and tough, the pillow is small and flat; Sleep your child better
on the back or abdomen; While reading and writing at the table must be created
Conditions for the maximum support of the body and the symmetric position of individual
parts of the body, legs should not hang out if they do not get to the floor
Substitute a bench.
Do not wait when scoliosis will enter 3 degree. If you have at least
The slightest suspicions of the disease, immediately refer to the specialists.
