Kids and nutrition. Colorado Springs
kids don’t think about it. Colorado Springs parents don’t always think about
it. But Colorado Springs nutrition is critical in Colorado Springs
kids’ spinal development and growth and Colorado Springs chiropractic care.
Good nutrition also fosters good spine and bone
development which your Colorado Springs chiropractor thinks about!
The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR talks nutrition whenever the opportunity rises. A good Colorado Springs nutritional foundation as a youth potentially contributes to a healthier spinal life.
WHAT’S HOLDING YOUTH BACK?
So what prevents Colorado Springs young people
and their Colorado Springs parents from thinking about their nutritional
status? Expectedly the same things that hold young adults back - belief
their diet is appropriate, no symptomatology, and confusion over nutrient sources. (1) The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR 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% tell of low back pain. Older
adolescents (24.4%) have more cervical spine pain
than younger ones (11.9%). Older
adolescents (25.1%) suffer more lumbar spine pain than
younger ones (12.4%), too. (3) More girls than boys report back pain. (4) As
researchers share, The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR notices that
Colorado Springs kids with spine pain have some things in common that put
them at risk for Colorado Springs back pain and
RISKS FOR Colorado Springs 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. Schoolchildren with moderate and severe pain had higher body mass indices, waist, hip and
waist-to-hip ratios. (2) The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR assesses Colorado Springs
back pain kids and adults to test for risks and set
a treatment plan to prevent them from becoming painful realities.
