Kids and nutrition. Plymouth
kids don’t think about it. Plymouth parents don’t always think about
it. But Plymouth nutrition is important in Plymouth
kids’ spinal development and growth and Plymouth chiropractic care.
Good nutrition also encourages good spine and bone
development which your Plymouth chiropractor thinks about!
Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology talks nutrition whenever the opportunity arises. A good Plymouth nutritional foundation as a youth potentially contributes to a healthier spinal life.
WHAT’S HOLDING YOUTH BACK?
So what keeps Plymouth young people
and their Plymouth parents from thinking about their nutritional
status? Expectedly the same things that hold young adults back - belief
their diet is correct, no symptomatology, and confusion over nutrient sources. (1) Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology knows that a life experience
When do young people consider their
nutritional status? At the same time it would garner 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 report
cervical spine pain. 18% report low back pain. Older
adolescents (24.4%) are affected more by cervical spine pain
than younger ones (11.9%). Older
adolescents (25.1%) feel more lumbar spine pain than
younger ones (12.4%), too. (3) More girls than boys report back pain. (4) As
researchers share, Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology notices that
Plymouth kids with spine pain have some things in common that put
them at risk for Plymouth back pain and
RISKS FOR Plymouth 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. These moderate and severe
pain schoolchildren had higher body mass indices, waist, hip and
waist-to-hip ratios. (2) Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology evaluates Plymouth
back pain kids and adults to examine for risks and set
a treatment plan to avert them from becoming painful realities.
