Scoliosis: Assess your child

Scoliosis is a problem more commonly seen in young females. There is a very simple way to assess to see if a child has a scoliosis and this is known as the Adams forward bend test. The child is asked to lean forward and bend 90 degrees at the hip whilst placing their hands between their legs. The examiner from behind, can then easily determine any asymmetry of the trunk or any abnormal spinal curvatures. Abnormalities at both the shoulder, mid back or the lower back may be seen depending on the type of scoliosis the child has. Although a useful test it is not advisable to be done in isolation as 15% of scoliosis' can be missed. Should you suspect or have a child with a diagnosis of scoliosis, feel free to book in to see on of our therapists that specialises in scoliosis management and scoliosis bracing.
