Kids and nutrition. Williamson
kids don’t think about it. Williamson parents don’t always think about
it. But Williamson nutrition is critical in Williamson
kids’ spinal development and growth and Williamson chiropractic care.
Good nutrition also encourages good spine and bone
development which your Williamson chiropractor thinks about!
Apple Country Chiropractic talks nutrition whenever the opportunity rises. A good Williamson nutritional foundation as a youth quite
possibly leads to a healthier spinal life.
WHAT’S HOLDING YOUTH BACK?
So what prevents Williamson young people
and their Williamson 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) Apple Country Chiropractic knows that a life experience
When do young people consider their
nutritional status? At the same time it would get 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% report low back pain. Older
adolescents (24.4%) have more 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, Apple Country Chiropractic notices that
Williamson kids with spine pain share some risk factors for Williamson back pain and
RISKS FOR Williamson BACK PAIN
What puts kids at risk of spine pain? Lots of factors
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) Apple Country Chiropractic evaluates Williamson
back pain kids and adults to examine for risks and create
a treatment plan to avert them from becoming painful realities.
