The Spine Protrudes When Sitting Bent?
My child is 13 months old. If you sit like a bow and the spine looks protruding. So that I have to straighten up so I don’t stoop. But if my child stands as usual, do not bend. Does my child have a spinal disorder? Please enlighten me, Thank you …
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. The conditions you mentioned for your child actually need to be seen immediately to avoid misunderstanding. Information about what is meant by bending needs to be re-confirmed, whether it is more on the spine of the neck or the chest, which protrudes it on which parts, whether there are abnormalities of posture such as curved and so forth. This should be clarified immediately because a 13-month-old child certainly does not understand good posture and what can sometimes be said to be okay if he bends a little.
Even if there are any spinal abnormalities, usually this must be confirmed again by X-rays after a direct examination. So our advice is that you should take your child to the doctor, may be a general practitioner or a bone doctor, for the examination. Meanwhile, do not worry too much, do not need to massage or massage with the aim of straightening or normalizing the bone without the doctor's approval, still meet nutritional needs with healthy food, and consult a doctor. So, hopefully answering your question.
