Plymouth Kids Benefit from Chiropractic & Nutritional Care

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.


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 gets attention.


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 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) 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.
