Scoliosis: a silent disease in children and adolescents. Stop it in time!

Spinal deviation is one of the most common back problems in young people. It usually occurs during growth and can have severe consequences for the future such as the use of a corset or surgery to correct it. Although three out of every 100 children suffer from it, this figure doubles between 12 and 16 years old, more often in girls. The altered growth of the spine is silent and pain-free, so when the doctor intervenes, usually by chance in relation to other discomfort, is found with an advanced disease, which can worsen on adulthood if it is not detected in time.

Early care makes the difference to prevent scoliosis from affecting the quality of life of the children. This condition can be detected by paying attention to the development of the posture, in this case one shoulder will appear higher than the other, one side of the hip will be higher than the other and the waist will be uneven.

Children and adolescents usually do uncomfortable postures, which, while not causing them pain, are contributing to develop it. Other causes are activities that require a long time to be bending or stooping, as well as going to the gym prematurely. Genetics is another factor to take into account.

What can I do to avoid invasive methods for scoliosis in my children?

In addition to postural exercises by a physiotherapist, specialists recommend applying Cordus and Sacrus, a safe and reliable method to help correct Scoliosis up to the third degree in children over 12 years. Cordus acts precisely and symmetrically on the poles of the back that suffer the deviation and where the origin of the Scoliosis is. Thanks to its anatomical design it reaches to stimulate the deepest and smallest muscles between the vertebrae that do not relax on their own and that are inaccessible for masseurs and chiropractors.

This method allows to recover the balance and muscle tone of the entire back through the re-positioning of the spine to its original position. Professionals recommend Cordus and its complement Sacrus, because they it allows to continue therapy from home easily and conveniently in the comfort of an armchair or rug.
