Common issues of children and adolescents that are successfully treated in

Kyphosis, Lordosis and Scoliosis


Kyphosis is the curvature of the spine that usually occurs in the thoracic spine, which appears more rounded than normal.
Lordosis is the excessive development of the lumbar curve of the spine. Less often, children develop a pronounced inward curve of the neck, cervical lordosis.
Adolescent idiopathic scoliosis is a three-dimensional deformity of the spine of unknown etiology. It is clinically described as a curvature of the spine greater than 10 degrees. It occurs in 2–2.5% of adolescents and is typically accompanied by rotation of the spine. Furthermore, it affects the alignment of the body, the spine and soft tissue structures. This leads to physical problems such as abnormal posture, aesthetic distortion of the trunk, impaired flexibility of the spine, change in the characteristics of the muscles of the spine, back pain and, in severe cases, reduced respiratory function.


Growing Pains


Growing pains describe any discomfort or pain in children during childhood growth. They are usually muscle pains without involving the joints and are usually located in the legs. Young children do not wish to participate in play or physical activities anymore.
Older children (3 to 8 and in early adolescence) complain of pain or fatigue during the night and cramps.
The exact causes have not been established. Possibly, however, it originates due to disproportionate growth of bones and ligaments, tendons and muscles. These symptoms typically appear on the thighs and shins, and in most cases on both legs. Mechanical problems in the feet such as pronation are likely to coexist.
