Speaking about the violations of posture, one cannot but touch upon one of the disease, very common among children of different age - flat feet. It may cause deformation of the spine. This is because sometimes the flattening of the one stop anymore, then there is a violation of support of the entire body. The child has to balance the body involuntarily slightly tilted towards the feet, where more pronounced flattening of the foot. This gradually leads to the curvature of the spine.

The habit of walking widely positioned legs and spreading socks stop leads to undue stress on the inner edge of the foot and predisposes to the development of flat feet. Therefore, you should teach children walking to put his feet not widely, to ensure that the feet are parallel to each other. The weight of the body when standing must be equally distributed on both feet.
It is clear that the emergence of flatfoot depends on the condition of muscles of the legs, which supports the arch of the feet. In children, paying little attention to physical culture and sports, as well as a weakened any illness, excessive load on the lower limbs (long walking, standing) easily causes the flat. This disease can arise from frivolous aspirations of parents early, up to 1 year, to raise and educate the walk not strong physically kids.
