(3) More girls than boys report back pain. (4) As researchers describe, Lakeshore Chiropractic sees that Two Rivers kids with spine pain share some risk factors for Two Rivers 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) Inactive adolescents have more cervical and lumbar spine pain than active kids. (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.
