In ad- dRion to dental checkups and annual physicals, pediatric medical specialists recommend adding a scoliosis screen- back-to-school checklists. What Is Scoliosis? Scoliosis, a musculoskeletal disorder that causes an abnormal curvature of the spine or backbone, is the most common deformity of the spine, affecting an esti- mated 6 to 9 million people in the Unit- ed States. Although 10 percent.of ado- lescents may have the condition, not all will need care. Early detection, however, can be key to successful treatment. "Because most causes are unknown, it's best to find the condition as early as possible to provide the best possible out- come~' explained Amer Samdani, M.D., chief of surgery for Shriners Hospitals for Children "--Philadelphia. Signs And Symptoms Children and teens with scoliosis rarely exhibit symptoms and sometimes the condition is not obvious until the curvature of the spine becomes severe. Some markers to watch for in a child who has scoliosis are: Clothes not fitting correctly or hems not hanging evenly Uneven shoulders, shoulder blades, ribs, hips or waist Entire body leaning to one side Appearance or texture of ribs stick- ing up on one side when bending forward Head not properly centered over the body. Diagnosis and Treatment When confirming a diagnosis of sco- liosis, a doctor will review your child's medical history, conduct a full exam- ination, and discuss treatment with you and your child. According to Dr. Samdani, there's no one-size-fits-all treatment for scoliosis. "Some cases will just need to be watched; others will need physical ther- apy, bracing or surgical procedures to stop the curve from progressing;' he From Getting Worse Before the school year starts can be a good time to screen for ~coliosis. said.

It can also lead to security difficulties. Fortunately, I have found four things that can be done to hetp your business succeed: "" 1. Gatekeeping. Decide who can use personal devices on your premises and how they can use them. Establish poli- cies on handling and protecting sensitive data and what sites can and cannot be accessed. Determine who, if anyone, is allowed to access personal sites or surf the Web during downtime. Make sure employees are well trained about this and clearly outline the consequences of vio- lating these policies. 2. Go beyond passwords. Set up your system so it takes more than a password to get in. Some devices require thumb- prints. Some systems will ask a specific question or test users with a picture. 3. Prioritize the data. Determine who's on the network--employees, cus- tomers-and what they're doing. De- cide which data relates to business and which is personal to your employees. You might even consider setting up a separate network just for nonessential data. That's where Comcast Business's Wi-Fi Pro can make a real difference. It lets you offer customers their own separate Interact while they're on your premises. Meanwhile, you can use it to promote daily specials or link to social media to ~ncrease
