Answers to the questions

What school should we choose?


Who should be right? The parent who looks at the child's development when choosing a school for the baby or the child who makes the decision based on color, pattern and form.

How's your school?

According to the orthopedic specialist, there is a school cat and its development symmetrical wearing most important, since load on the spine In the long run, it can lead to significant musculoskeletal complaints. Purchasing a school bag is one of the most important and, in some respects, the most controversial task in the family, as it would choose children and parents based on other considerations. However difficult it is, the parent needs to be more confident and, if necessary, to be rigid, because the health of the child does not matter what they choose. " the schoolbag should lie symmetrically on the back, and from shoulder to top of the pelvis. This avoids making the bag too big or burdening the child's back. Many of the homeschooling homes available here do not meet these criteria. However, if you think that a child between 30 and 60 pounds will have to carry up to 10 pounds every day because of school supplies, tuition, technology or drawing or gym equipment, they shouldn't mind the weight of the pocket - Dr. Szabolcs Molnбr Ph.D., chief physician of the Budapest Organs of Private Movement Organism. As he says, it is a popular solution in many countries for children to carry their belongings in a wheelchair, but it is almost unknown in Hungary. He added that adults should be helped not to burden the child's spine with the bag, as for them an almost 10-pound bag is like balancing an adult with 20 kg. According to the orthopedic specialist - just like in the case of airplanes, the weight of the skins - generally, a school should be low class and maximize the weight a child can carry in school. He advises as much as possible to leave the child within the institution. Heavy schoolbags initially for poor posture, pain, and in the long run locomotor complaints may appear. It can worsen neglected posture, Scheuermann's disease, or spinal cord disease, and can cause pelvic spine problems after bone fracture, "added Dr. Szabolcs Molnber Ph.D.It is important that a child in compulsory physical education move regularly, choose a sport you find fun. The orthopedic practitioner recommended stitching, horseback riding, and increasingly modern wall-washing because of the even load on the spine. The most important thing, however, was controlled movementwhen it is possible to adjust the load ratios and symmetry directly (eg with the help of a trainer). He added that it is best for the parent to have an example and exercise regularly, of course, that may not fit into the weekdays. If this is not feasible, it is also important to consider using a physiotherapist to learn exercises that can be performed at home at any time: refreshes the spine, but avoids the whole body. All in all, the role of the parent is indispensable in prevention and treatment, so naturally and logically we are involved as partners in screening tests, and later on during visits.
