Sluggish posture is a condition in which the weakness of the muscular corset of the back is diagnosed. At the same time the child is forced to constantly hold the lower back and other parts of the back with his hands in order to maintain its correct position.
The reasons for the appearance of such a state can be several. For example, it’s a long sitting at the computer or at the desk. Also, the reason may be training, in which you have to bend your body too often or be in one position. And, of course, the reasons are a sedentary lifestyle and so-called hypodynamia, although this condition is not typical for children.
What can become a provoking factor for the development of this pathology? First of all, this is a heredity, as well as anatomical features in the structure of the spine. The cause may be loads that exceed the baby’s potential. And, of course, this is the supercooling of the back.
What if the child was diagnosed with a flaccid back? Here it is necessary to observe two important rules – to strengthen the muscles and to control the position of the body. In the first case it is necessary to do exercises every day, which will be recommended by the doctor.
During the treatment, you can not apply great physical effort while doing the exercises – pain in the spine should not be. Do best those exercises that do not cause discomfort or discomfort.
The amplitude and frequency of repetitions at the first time should be minimal. Gradually, these indicators should be increased. If some exercise gives pain, then it must be abandoned.
All the exercises can be done at home, and it is desirable that parents work with the children.
Most often, all curvatures develop in the region of 4 to 7 years and at the age from 14 to 16 years. It is during this period that parents should monitor the health of their children. This is due to the fact that the muscle mass is growing more slowly than the spine grows. This is what causes the development of all kinds of curvatures, including scoliosis, which can be either barely expressed or quite visible to the naked eye.
