Default Skating Activities

Hi

I'm new to the forum. My 11.3 yr old daughter was recently diagnosed with IAS. I think 3 curves: first is a shallow curve in the upper cervicothoracic region, second T6-7 to T12 (27 degrees) and third T12 to L4-5 (29 degrees).

We are waiting for our specialist appointment early February. Can anyone tell me if it's wise to allow her to continue her usual sporting activities? We've stopped Cirkidz, but she really wants to go ice skating. It's just a once-off thing. I'm leaning toward stopping her from doing anything to aggravate her spine, but I also don't want to limit her life so much that's she's resentful, self-conscious and miserable.

Any advice welcome.

Best

Dy

Hi
Let her ice skate, it wont increase her curve or do any harm if anything its good she is exercising. If she can skate without pain let her. Hey she cant sit around and do nothing, that would be bad for her mental health. Enjoy your Christmas

Thanks so much Rosie. I feel thats good advice. She has no pain and also loves horse riding. I don't want to limit her fun. So hard to know when to be protective and when to let go.

Happy holidays

Best
