Scoliosis is a disease that currently affects 3% of the population and is in a spinal deformity that occurs with lateral curvature and a spin of the vertebral bodies that is most evident in the coastal zone. It is estimated that about 65% of cases are idiopathic scoliosis, about 15% are congenital and about 10% are secondary to neuromuscular disease.
Patients who have reached skeletal maturity are less likely to get worse.
Before identifying scoliosis , the greater the chances of avoiding worsening and correcting this spine deformity , which predisposes females and affects about 3% of children at an evolutionary age .
The scoliotic spine is curled up and deformed in the three directions of the space. The consequences are asymmetries of shoulders, shoulder blades and hips. Normally scoliosis is diagnosed with a spinal radiography and then quantized the vertebrae inclination that is measured in degrees Cobb . We speak of scoliosis if you exceed 10 ° Cobb The SpinalMeter postural software , along with its biometric device, can measure the angle of Cobb without giving any radiation, making it possible to prevent scoliosis , as well as lardosis and cephosis, even infantile, allowing prevention and treatment in phases not yet acute, providing the physician with a set of objective data needed to achieve accurate diagnosis .
