Most Common Posture Distortions In Kids
Dr Brad Ivanchuk here.
I am a Burlington, Ontario Chiropractor at Life Chiropractic Centre on Guelph Line in the Beacon Hill Plaza.
I am also a canfitpro certified Personal Training Specialist and an American Posture Institute certified Posture Expert and Postural Neurologist.
If you have kids then please read on because today we are going to learn about the most common postural distortions that I see in kids these days.
And this will depend upon whether your kids are sedentary kids or active kids. They are usually one or the other.
Sedentary kids love to watch TV and play their video games.
They also spend a lot of time sitting and on their laptops, tablets and cell phones.
Their postural distortions are going to be way different than the active kids; the ones who love to ride their bikes, play ball hockey in the driveway, and play organized sports in school and outside of school.
The sedentary kids will typically present with Tech Neck; forward head posture in combination with hump-back.
So their troubles are going to be in Posture Quadrant 1 and Posture Quadrant 2.
These guys are going to be more likely to suffer from headaches, neck and shoulder pain and stiffness, breathing difficulties, lack of energy and weight gain.
The active kids on the other hand will have had more physical stress; falls, bumps, bruises, sprains and strains.
Their troubles are going to be more-so in Posture Quadrant 3 (lower back and pelvis) and Posture Quadrant 4 (legs).
Unless of course they have suffered a concussion (Posture Quadrant 1).
They will be more likely to suffer from lower back pain, abnormal spinal curves, scoliosis, achy knees and sprained ankles.
Every parent hopes that their kids will never suffer from any of these things.
But what is better than just hoping they don’t, is being proactive and taking the necessary measures to make sure that they never happen in the first place.
And this is where I would be delighted to help you.
All you have to do is call and schedule an appointment for your free initial consultation.
These also include a detailed postural analysis where we can check your entire posture system and identify any potential problems.
We also offer family appointments where we can check all of your kids at the same time.
And this is a very wise idea because spinal problems tend to run in families.
