Scoliosis Physiotherapy in London & postural rehabilitation for kids, children and teenagers with our London physiotherapist
Scoliosis Physiotherapy treatment and rehabilitation in children
Treatment differs and depends on various factors, such as
- The patient’s age.
- Whether they are still growing.
- The severity of the curve.
- The exact location of the curve.
- The chance that scoliosis may progress.
At Baby Physio London we have years of experience treating children of all ages with scoliosis. We carry out a full assessment of your child’s spine in order to detect the causes of the curve, and we create a personalised treatment plan depending on the factors described above. We then carry out musculoskeletal work in order for your child to regain good posture and so that the scoliosis doesn’t progress further.
We offer after school home visits in London for the treatment, so we can treat your child in familiar environment where they feel comfortable. We can also arrange Saturday sessions or alternatively, we can also treat patients at one of the two Light Centre practices, in Belgravia, near London Victoria station, or in the City of London, near Moorgate station. Please contact us for further details or to book an appointment.
What is a Scoliosis?
Scoliosis is a back condition that causes the spine to curve to the side, which results to bad posture and back pain. It develops in children and adolescents, between the ages of 9 and 16, during the growth spurt of puberty. It differs from kyphosis (convex curvature of the spine in the thoracic region) and lordosis (inward curvature of the lumbar and cervical regions of the spine), as the curve is to the side.
How Scoliosis occurs and how to detect scoliosis in children?
In most cases, scoliosis occurs gradually and if it’s not severe it can be painless. You can detect scoliosis by looking at your child’s back from behind. If the spine has a sideways curve in the lower part of the spine (lumbar curve), in the upper part of the spine (thoracic curve) or one that goes from the upper to lower part of the spine and looks like and S (thoracolumbar curve), then they have scoliosis.
What is the most common scoliosis in children?
There are different types and causes of scoliosis, but idiopathic scoliosis is the most common type. It has no specific identifiable causes and if left untreated, it can become a severe issue and cause problems such as chronic back pain, disfigurement in the ribs, shoulder blades or pelvis, breathing problems or even heart problems. Scoliosis in children and teenagers can be treated with physiotherapy. The earlier the treatment begins, the better the chances to correct the issue.
