Fort Wayne Kids Benefit from Chiropractic & Nutritional Care

Kids and nutrition. Fort Wayne kids don’t think about it. Fort Wayne parents don’t always think about 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! Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc talks nutrition whenever the opportunity arises. A good Fort Wayne nutritional foundation as a youth quite possibly leads to a healthier spinal life.


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 confusion over nutrient sources. (1) Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc knows that a life experience gets notice.


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, Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc notes that Fort Wayne kids with spine pain have some things in common that put them at risk for Fort Wayne back pain and neck 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) Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc 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.
