Kids and nutrition. Severna Park
kids don’t think about it. Severna Park parents don’t always think about
it. But Severna Park nutrition is critical in Severna Park
kids’ spinal development and growth and Severna Park chiropractic care.
Good nutrition also encourages good spine and bone
development which your Severna Park chiropractor thinks about!
Back And Neck Care Center shares nutrition whenever the opportunity presents
itself. A good Severna Park nutritional foundation as a youth quite
possibly contributes to a healthier spinal life.
WHAT’S HOLDING YOUTH BACK?
So what prevents Severna Park young people
and their Severna Park parents from thinking about their nutritional
status? Likely the same things that hold young adults back - belief
their diet is correct, no symptomatology, and misperception
of nutrient sources. (1) Back And Neck Care Center knows that a life experience
When do young people think about their
nutritional status? At the same time it would get the attention of
an adult - when there is pain. Incredibly, 71% of
schoolchildren aged 12-17 years report at least one
episode of low back pain. (2) 17.4% of students recount
cervical spine pain. 18% state low back pain. Older
adolescents (24.4%) have more cervical spine pain
than younger ones (11.9%). Older
adolescents (25.1%) suffer more lumbar spine pain than
younger ones (12.4%), too. (3) More girls than boys report back pain. (4) As
researchers share, Back And Neck Care Center sees that
Severna Park kids with spine pain have some things in common that put
them at risk for Severna Park back pain and
RISKS FOR Severna Park BACK PAIN
What puts kids at risk of spine pain? Lots of things
like limited sun exposure, inadequate vitamin d diets, adiposity, lower
physical activity, sedentary lifestyles, vitamin 25 (oh) d deficiency, and lower
levels of calcium, creatine kinase, and lactic dehydrogenase. (2) Being
inactive increases the odds of having neck and back pain in
adolescents. (3) In an 8-month study period, 52.2% of schoolchildren had
low back pain. 34% had moderate and 18% had severe back pain. More girls (36%) than boys (24%) report back
pain. Schoolchildren with moderate and severe pain had higher body mass indices, waist, hip and
waist-to-hip ratios. (2) Back And Neck Care Center evaluates Severna Park
back pain kids and adults to check for risks and set
a treatment plan to avert them from turning out to be painful realities.
