Scoliosis: Assess Your Child
Scoliosis is a problem more commonly seen in young females. A very simple way to assess to see if a child has it is through the Adam’s forward bend test.
The child will lean forward and bend 90 degrees at the hip, with their hands placed 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. This is dependent on the type of scoliosis the child has.
It is a useful test. The condition is, however, missed 15% of the time. Therefore, doing it should not be done in isolation.
