Scoliosis affects 10-20% of school-going children. The underlying impact goes much deeper beyond visible signs like poor posture and spinal curves.

Parents often ignore this condition and try to relate their children’s poor grades to other reasons.

The real reason for a child’s plummeting grade could be difficulty in focusing, struggling to retain information, daytime fatigue – all arising because of scoliosis and spinal misalignment.

Fortunately, Scoliosis can be treated in a precise, painless, and non-invasive method, posing no consequence on a child’s health and development.


Why Healthy Spine Development Is Important For Children

The spine is more than just the backbone of the human body. It ensures the overall health of the body, especially helping in the effective functioning of brain-to-body connection. A healthy spine supports the body, giving it structural integrity and movement. Not only this, it houses blood vessels and nerves connected to internal organs.

The spinal alignment ensures the proper functioning of organs with the help of proper coordination and cooperation.

Spine development is extremely critical for a child to have proper posture. A healthy spine promotes overall health and neurological activities. Conversely, a misaligned spine leads to an array of health issues that affect the learning ability of the child. The intensity may vary according to severity. Children may experience not only physical pain but also significant academic challenges.

What Causes Scoliosis in Children?

Scoliosis does not have one specific cause. Some conditions like genetic factors, neuromuscular and birth defects can be potential causes.

These conditions affect the nerves and muscles supporting the spine, causing it to curve.

Causes of Scoliosis:

– Trauma during childbirth

– Injured during a school trip

– Carrying a heavy school bag

– Maintain the same posture for a long time

– Incorrect posture and habits

– The wrong way to lift heavy objects

Birth defect conditions like congenital scoliosis are present at birth. The severity increases because of environmental influences and growth spurts during puberty. In addition, factors like poor posture, and lack of physical activity can develop or intensify the progression of scoliosis.

Signs of Scoliosis in Children

The human body thrives on symmetry. For parents, a keen eye can help detect early signs of scoliosis in children.

Early detection can contain the impact and help effectively handle the treatment. Here are some signs to watch for:

1. Uneven Shoulders and Shoulder Blades:

– One side of the shoulder may appear higher.

– One side of the shoulder blades protrudes more and looks uneven.

2. Asymmetrical Waist and Pelvis:

– Pelvis or waist height is higher compared to the other side.

3. Head and Neck Tilt:

– The head does not align with the body symmetry, causing a tilt to one side – The tilt affects the overall balance and posture

4. Posture Issues:

– Scoliosis can cause Tilted sitting, standing, and walking postures

– The spine is curved to one side, leading to poor posture.

5. Physical Discomfort:

– Scoliosis causes shortness of breath, fatigue, and a lack of energy.

– They also experience neck tightness, arm pain, lower back pain, numbness, or weakness in the lower limbs.

6. Mental and Cognitive Impact:

– Scoliosis affects a child’s mental functions, concentration, and learning ability. – The pain associated with scoliosis disrupts their normal activities and studies.
