it. But Pensacola nutrition is critical in Pensacola
kids’ spinal development and growth and Pensacola chiropractic care.
Good nutrition also encourages good spine and bone
development which your Pensacola chiropractor thinks about!
Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center talks nutrition whenever the opportunity arises. A good Pensacola nutritional foundation as a youth potentially leads to a healthier spinal life.
WHAT’S HOLDING YOUTH BACK?
So what keeps Pensacola young people
and their Pensacola parents from thinking about their nutritional
status? Expectedly the same things that hold young adults back - belief
their diet is appropriate, no symptomatology, and misperception
of nutrient sources. (1) Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center 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. 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 recount
cervical spine pain. 18% state low back pain. Older
adolescents (24.4%) have more 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 describe, Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center notes that
Pensacola kids with spine pain share some risk factors for Pensacola back pain and
RISKS FOR Pensacola 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) 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) Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center assesses Pensacola
back pain kids and adults to check for risks and create
a treatment plan to avert them from developing
into painful realities.
