Children grow, their bodies constantly undergo new development phases. Skeleton and muscles change with the motoric development. To prevent diseases of the spine or the young musculoskeletal system and to recognize and treat them - this is the primary task of pediatric orthopedics. No matter whether these diseases are congenital or occur later. The treatment of injuries and their consequences is, of course, also part of this.
During childhood as well as adolescence, many orthopedic disorders and ailments can be corrected relatively easily, which otherwise lead to permanent damage in the adult age. This applies, for example, to scoliosis, a spinal curvature, which causes severe damage to the posture.
