Focus on Exercise

Aerobic exercise: mainly for running, swimming, walking, and other sports, can increase the flexibility of the spine, to prevent the spine from maintaining a position for a long time, resulting in an excessive increase in spinal stress. Excessive increase in spinal stress can lead to cervical disc herniation, lumbar disc herniation, and other diseases, so long-term aerobic exercise can effectively avoid such diseases; Anaerobic exercise: anaerobic exercise is to exercise muscle strength, mainly including plank support, etc., these exercises can better increase the core muscle strength. If the core muscles are stronger, the spine will be more stable. Therefore, long-term adherence to moderate aerobic exercise and anaerobic exercise can ensure the health of the spine.

Watch Your Diet

Teenagers can supplement their bones with calcium, vitamin D, collagen, and vitamin E, such as walnuts, hazelnuts, olive oil, mayonnaise, eggs, fish, and grains. In particular, a daily intake of 1,200 to 1,500 milligrams of calcium is essential. In addition to taking calcium supplements, foods containing calcium must also be consumed to make bones stronger, which may be lacking in scoliosis treatment.
