Kids and nutrition. Two Rivers
kids don’t think about it. Two Rivers parents don’t always think about
it. But Two Rivers nutrition is important in Two Rivers
kids’ spinal development and growth and Two Rivers chiropractic care.
Good nutrition also boosts good spine and bone
development which your Two Rivers chiropractor thinks about!
Lakeshore Chiropractic shares nutrition whenever the opportunity arises. A good Two Rivers nutritional foundation as a youth quite
possibly contributes to a healthier spinal life.
WHAT’S HOLDING YOUTH BACK?
So what keeps Two Rivers young people
and their Two Rivers parents from thinking about their nutritional
status? Likely the same things that hold young adults back - belief
their diet is appropriate, no symptomatology, and misperception
of nutrient sources. (1) Lakeshore Chiropractic knows that a life experience
When do young people think about their
nutritional status? At the same time it would garner the attention of
an adult - when there is pain. Amazingly, 71% of
schoolchildren aged 12-17 years say that they had at least one
episode of low back pain. (2) 17.4% of students report
cervical spine pain. 18% tell of low back pain. Older
adolescents (24.4%) are affected more by cervical spine pain
than younger ones (11.9%). Older
adolescents (25.1%) experience more lumbar spine pain than
younger ones (12.4%), too. (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
RISKS FOR Two Rivers 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) 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. (2) Lakeshore Chiropractic assesses Two Rivers
back pain kids and adults to check for risks and create
a treatment plan to thwart them from turning out to be painful realities.
