| Wednesday | 11th September, 2019
In order to collect data on spinal deformities among the school students, the Association of Spine Surgeons of India (ASSI) will be doing a nation-wide screening of students, including around 10,000 students from Mumbai.
Spinal deformities characterized by abnormal curvature of the spine are found in children below 14 years of age.
The study will help the organization collect much-needed data on the prevalence of spinal deformity while identifying school students who need medical intervention.
ASSI also plans to launch an e-learning programme for consumers and one part of it will be on spinal deformities which would enable common people to identify spinal deformity, said, Dr H S Chhabra, President, ASSI.
Collation of long term data under the study will help experts to study the prevalence of spine deformities and their prognosis in India.
