The spine is formed gradually through childhood period: the shape and size of the spinal column change radically after the birth and the most rapid growth of the vertebrae is observed during the first two years of life.
At 3-4 months’ age, when a child only starts trying to keep the head independently, the so-called cervical lordosis is formed. At 6 months’ age the thoracic kyphosis is formed and, generally, at this time children can steadily sit. Sacral kyphosis and lumbar lordosis are formed when a child begins to walk, and 6 year old children have a typical spine shape formed. The formation of distinctive curves ends at approximately 18-20 years.
Parents should know exactly what criteria the normal posture should meet. And they are:
In childhood, the skeleton develops faster than muscle tissue, and, therefore, you should pay special attention to child's poses and control the posture. Paediatricians call posture deviations as defects or disorders, and not consider them a disease. However, incorrect posture is an intermediate state between a pathology and normal state, and is a pre-disease, because posture irregularities seriously impair functioning of the internal organs, which can be the ground for development of various diseases.
The present days are manifested not only by the global technological and intellectual processes, but also by the global shortage of time. Meaning that little time is being left to care for your health, and most importantly — for maintaining healthy tone of your child. Educational institutions for children and schools can't afford to control every child individually. At home when doing schoolwork children are usually left by themselves, and often they just "lie" in their armchairs or lean onto the desk with their chest, read textbooks at extreme angles, cross legs under them, incorrectly position their elbows on the table and so on. Of course, every parent has seen such “acrobatic pictures” at least once.
All this inevitably leads to one thing — BAD POSTURE, INCORRECT SPINE SHAPE FORMATION, LOWED MUSCLE TONE, DECREASED VISION AND DEVELOPMENT OF CHRONIC DISEASES OF INTERNAL ORGANS.
PREVENT AND CONTROL!
These two actions should be dominant among parents. But how? The typical working day takes all daylight time, then you struggle with traffic jams in rush hours, do all the household tasks at home and... As a result, all mankind gets chronic fatigue syndrome diagnosis. But here is a unique opportunity to save time, and most importantly — to prevent this syndrome from affecting our children, when they grow up.
It's all starts from childhood! And the correct posture as well. KULIK SYSTEM children's armchairs will ensure healthy childhood and proper spine formation! These armchairs, having a unique system to support all spine regions, form the perfect posture and control it as time goes, are the best “mentors” for your children.
Let's conclude — to prevent spine diseases just purchase KULIK SYSTEM armchair for your child, and KULIK SYSTEM ergonomics will take care of all subtleties of the correct posture.
