When and how does spinal cord disease develop in childhood? Dr Dr. Gergely Kiss, a physician at Medinnorad Radiology Center, answers.

Spine: Signs that you need to see a doctor

The spine is the supporting column of the vertebrae of the bone system. Exposure to a load is reduced by more effective wearing: its normal conditions are concave at the cervical section, convex at the dorsal section, or at the lower part of the lumbar region, also known as the lumbar region. The consecutive concave and convex sections, when viewed from the side of the spine, show a double "S" shape. These are natural curves which, by the very nature of the spine, also become elastic. There may be some internal organs in the background, but they are mostly congenital problems of unknown origin. Most often it is characterized by a rapid growth in age (7-9 and 12-15 years). This may result in deformity and pain in the affected region.

When to see a doctor?

Given the relatively common differences that can be effectively treated in childhood, it is important for parents to pay attention to the specific symptoms that may warrant medical attention.
  • With a straight posture, the head is not centered on the body, but tilts to one side
  • Asymmetry in chest or stock
  • The shoulders are not at the same height
  • Asymmetric waistline
  • In long position, the arms appear to be of different lengths
An important symptom is the formation of the so-called rib cage: standing with the legs extended with the legs extended in a straight posture, when the torso is horizontal, the transverse or transverse level of the spine is crossed.

How can vertebrate disease be verified?

Diagnosis begins with a thorough physical examination. If you have a suspicion of scoliosis on this basis, the X-ray exam is the next step. These images are easily recognizable as curvature, lateral, and typically "C" shaped curves, typical of vertebral column. It is not uncommon to find multi-curved curves: for example, the curvature on the weekly section is to the right and the curve to the left on the bed section. This phenomenon is called "S" shaped scoliosis. The advantage of a x-ray examination is that it provides a quick, painless and confident diagnosis in this request. Based on the images, you can specify the exact location and extent of the vertebral tilt, and it is also possible to detect any other discrepancies in the background.
