Many adults, in order to pre­vent stoop and sco­l­io­sis in chil­dren, enroll them in dif­fer­ent sports sec­tions, con­sid­er­ing this the best solu­tion. True, not all sports activ­i­ties guar­an­tee that the child will have the cor­rect pos­ture. When choos­ing which sport to give pref­er­ence to, you should avoid those types in which asym­met­ric loads pre­dom­i­nate.

When playing sports, it is important to ensure that physical activity is distributed evenly.

When play­ing sports, it is impor­tant to ensure that phys­i­cal activ­i­ty is dis­trib­uted even­ly.

Asym­met­ric loads pre­dom­i­nate in sports such as ten­nis and bad­minton. Since ath­letes often play with one hand, one half of their body is more devel­oped. If the child will load one part of the body for a long time, changes in the grow­ing body will not be long in com­ing. In this case, it is impor­tant that the train­er con­trols the phys­i­cal load, which should be dis­trib­uted even­ly.

Football players are distinguished by good endurance and purposefulness

Team sports

Sports such as vol­ley­ball, bas­ket­ball, foot­ball even­ly devel­op all the mus­cles of the body. In bas­ket­ball, the child learns to catch, drib­ble and pass the ball with both hands; in foot­ball, he learns to receive and pass the ball with both feet equal­ly. This is how the coor­di­na­tion of the whole body devel­ops, and the child’s pos­ture dis­or­ders are pre­vent­ed. By the way, even exist­ing “dis­tor­tions” of the spine can be cor­rect­ed.

Swimming promotes healing, physical development and hardening of children

Swim­ming pro­motes heal­ing, phys­i­cal devel­op­ment and hard­en­ing of chil­dren


Swim­ming for chil­dren of any age is a great way to even­ly and har­mo­nious­ly devel­op mus­cles, get a regal pos­ture, good health and full immu­ni­ty. And the soon­er the child begins to swim, the bet­ter. This sport helps to keep the weight of the child nor­mal, trains the lungs, strength­ens the spine, and also devel­ops endurance.

Dance and gymnastics

Rhyth­mic gym­nas­tics, aer­o­bics, dances improve coor­di­na­tion of move­ments, form not only the cor­rect pos­ture, but also a beau­ti­ful gait. Such sports will instill a sense of rhythm, give the child plas­tic­i­ty and flex­i­bil­i­ty.


Cycling per­fect­ly calms the chil­dren’s ner­vous sys­tem, sig­nif­i­cant­ly increas­es stress resis­tance. Sys­tem­at­ic cycling helps the child’s body to devel­op cor­rect­ly and har­mo­nious­ly. Cycling teach­es you to keep bal­ance, trains all the mus­cles, espe­cial­ly the legs and back. Dur­ing class­es, the car­dio­vas­cu­lar and res­pi­ra­to­ry sys­tems, the mus­cu­loskele­tal sys­tem devel­op, and metab­o­lism improves.

martial arts

Such ori­en­tal non-spar­ring mar­tial arts as wushu, aiki­do have a ben­e­fi­cial effect on chil­dren’s pos­ture. They devel­op pre­cise coor­di­na­tion of move­ments. The child learns to pro­tect him­self, to think spa­tial­ly, to be brave, hardy, and also to cal­cu­late his every step. In addi­tion, this sport is not as trau­mat­ic as oth­er types of wrestling.
