Look at your child's posture !!!
Posture - is a balanced position of the spinal column and muscles, surrounding it, in a system, called the musculoskeletal system of human. Each disorders of our body are represented at the posture, as the spinal column and back muscles are central. The man with the beautiful posture immediately attracts attention, because this posture is not often seen.

Each person creates his or her own posture from childhood. Look at your child from the outside and you will see, that his or her posture is far from ideal. The checkup should be done in frontal and sagital planes (front / back and sides).
If you have seen postural disorder, then most of all, it is talking about serious violations in the musculoskeletal system of the child and it is need immediately to do something. If you do not see any significant changes, it does not mean that they are not. More than likely, you do not have certain knowledge / skills to see these changes.

During the checkup of the child from the side, you should pay attention to the main guidelines:
• line, drawn through the ear canal and the lateral angle of eye socket;
• line, drawn through the back and front top pelvic axis.
Normally, these lines should be parallel to the horizontal line, and the line drawn from the ear canal down, must be passing through the center of the shoulder joint, the big trochanter and the middle of the foot.
