    Torso Rotation Strength Training For Scoliosis

    If your five year old already has Scoliosis you may want to consider strength training when he gets a little older. I believe a 7 or 8 year old can fit into one of these machines.

    If your five year old doesn't have Scoliosis I wouldn't worry about it. The odds are good that neither he nor his children will suffer from Scoliosis.

    Although genes may (or may not) increase the likelihood that a child will suffer from Scoliosis nobody knows for sure what triggers it. Identical twins are routinely discordant for Scoliosis. The largest and most recent twin study found relatively low concordance. If one identical twin had Scoliosis the other had it just 13% of the time.

    Adolescent idiopathic scoliosis in twins: a population-based survey.

    Another thing to keep in mind is that although some families are hit hard by Scoliosis roughly 2 in 3 cases occur seemingly at random.
