Scoliosis is our topic today and we will be reviewing Albert Heijn Kronkels, compliments of McKenna Homner. Kronkels also known as Vockles. Yes, this is the store brand version. They are a little wider then the Vockle which is a tight spiral. Like a corkscrew. Yes, the Vockle is more like a Fritos Twist.
Scoliosis, there are a couple main types. We won’t be able to fully discuss all the kinds. The big diagnosis value is the Cobb Angle. The Cobb Angle measures the amount of curvature in the spine. Anything-greater than 10degrees is considered officially scoliosis. That could be functional which you could actively correct. Or postural which you could not actively correct.
When with physical therapy we see a secondary diagnosis of scoliosis that is typically a functional instead of structural. Commonly the functional type is 10ish degrees or at least milder.
One of the more commons ones is adolescent idiopathic. This is going to affect a small percentage. Less then 5% of kids going through their teenage years, the growth spurt years. These are individuals without any other cause for the curvature. So idiopathic means; without a cause.
The more significant forms are congenital, which is due typically to a birth defect and neuromuscular which is secondary to another issue; Muscular dystrophy, cerebral palsy or some other kind of neurological disorder.
Scoliosis is either a “C” or “S” shape. This is named for the curve the spine assumes. If you look at someone’s back and the spine is not straight like and “I” but curves like a “C”. That would be a “C” scoliosis. If it has a double curve then it would be an “S” scoliosis.
