Severna Park Kids Benefit from Chiropractic & Nutritional Care

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.


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 draws attention.


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 neck 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. These moderate and severe pain schoolchildren 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.
