it. But Fort Wayne nutrition is critical in Fort Wayne
kids’ spinal development and growth and Fort Wayne chiropractic care.
Good nutrition also encourages good spine and bone
development which your Fort Wayne chiropractor thinks about!
Fort Wayne Chiropractic Radiological Center talks nutrition whenever the opportunity arises. A good Fort Wayne nutritional foundation as a youth potentially leads to a healthier spinal life.
WHAT’S HOLDING YOUTH BACK?
So what prevents Fort Wayne young people
and their Fort Wayne parents from thinking about their nutritional
status? Expectedly the same things that hold young adults back - belief
their diet is correct, no symptomatology, and misperception
of nutrient sources. (1) Fort Wayne Chiropractic Radiological Center knows that a life experience
When do young people think about their
nutritional status? At the same time it would get the attention of
an adult - when there is pain. Incredibly, 71% of
schoolchildren aged 12-17 years say that they had at least one
episode of low back pain. (2) 17.4% of students describe
cervical spine pain. 18% state 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 share, Fort Wayne Chiropractic Radiological Center notes that
Fort Wayne kids with spine pain have some things in common that put
them at risk for Fort Wayne back pain and
RISKS FOR Fort Wayne 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) Fort Wayne Chiropractic Radiological Center evaluates Fort Wayne
back pain kids and adults to evaluate for risks and create
a treatment plan to prevent them from developing
into painful realities.
