Wrong position of the body, вошедшее in the habit that results in a change of the shape of the spine, thorax, reflected in the functioning of the lower limbs, forming flat feet. In children with искривлением of the spine worse works the entire musculoskeletal system, increasing the risk of injury.

Power correct posture – the key to success in business. Why is it so important the ability to keep yourself?
Sure, we've all heard this expression: a royal posture. It is considered that this concept is derived from the words "like", which suggests a high degree, an important place. Thus, it can follow the semantic relationship between the position in society and the ability to keep yourself. The more a person sees life, the more he begins to believe in the power of the proper attitude of the body.
Studies have been conducted that scientifically prove that there is effect of posture on the process of formation of personality. In particular, the ability beautifully to keep yourself – the key to success in business. It was shown, that the slender man radiates self-confidence, it is easier to come in contact with people. Curvature of the spine negatively affects not only health, but also to the psychological situation. It is no coincidence that in all times the military service was followed by the posture of the soldiers. Especially strict were coming in czarist Russia. But today in every army in the world know, also, about the power of proper posture. To do this, we need only compare pictures of the intakes and children after demobilisation.
Silhouette of a man, who can to keep yourself, slim. The walk is beautiful, but the steps are accurate. At the same time with this would look like with confidence and comfort. On the contrary, the person with the wrong attitude of the body, usually, clumsy, the steps insufficient. On a subconscious level more confidence causes a thin man, despite slouching. In addition, the shape is the first thing you notice when meeting. And to change this impression will not be easy at all. Scientists have proven that words account for only 5 -10 % of our communication. All the rest is gestures, facial expressions, gaze, the timbre of the voice, tone of voice, etc.
Causes of poor posture
As we have already said above, the most important factor that causes clumsy, is гиподинамия. And even physical education classes are not a panacea. The point is that the kids often mistake of sitting at a desk, lifting one shoulder above the other. Finally, many of the students come from the walls of alma mater the сколиозом. Among other things, is why poor posture would have to mention:
- excess weight?
- wearing shoes with high heels?
- mild physical development?
- congenital anomalies of the body;
- excessively quick development (the development of muscle behind the development of the skeleton);
According to experts, the age to 17 years of age – the most important for the formation of a healthy skeleton. Even a small deviation in the position of the body, which is included in the habit, this time is extremely dangerous.
The types of deformities of the spine
So, if the child does not keep back straight, move a little, a burden on the one hand, the body are developed dangerous procedures. There are three types of spinal deformities: lordosis, kyphosis and scoliosis. Note that the first two types of changes is so natural and the pathological. Lordosis is a deformity of the spine forward, which is there to all the people in the cervical and lumbar spine. Kyphosis – a deformity of the spine in the back, that occurs in the breast department, as well as in the part of the sacrum and the coccyx. Pathological lordosis and kyphosis differ from the physiological changes only by the degree of bending.
Also there is a scoliosis, or sideways curvature of the spine. It is considered, shows the lack of exercise of the muscles of the back. This kind of deformities of the spine in the world today is considered to be a serious disease, which leads to a deterioration of the function of many organs. It was found that scoliosis occurs and develops in his youth, and so face better 20 years ago, while the vertebrae is not yet the end is difficult. At an older age to get rid of this disease is extremely difficult.
Surprisingly, many parents watching the child curvature of the spine, do not give importance to this. Their argument was usually the child goes to the sports section (monitor physical education classes), then all will be well. But such an approach not only justifies himself, but also can lead to dangerous diseases, such as back pain or osteoporosis. If the child is not right, holds back, unevenly and sitting at the table – it's a chance for the doctor's visit-orthopedic surgeon, or a surgeon.
