Kids and nutrition. Richmond
kids don’t think about it. Richmond parents don’t always think about
it. But Richmond nutrition is important in Richmond
kids’ spinal development and growth and Richmond chiropractic care.
Good nutrition also encourages good spine and bone
development which your Richmond chiropractor thinks about!
Johnson Chiropractic shares nutrition whenever the opportunity rises. A good Richmond nutritional foundation as a youth potentially contributes to a healthier spinal life.
WHAT’S HOLDING YOUTH BACK?
So what prevents Richmond young people
and their Richmond 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) Johnson Chiropractic knows that a life experience
When do young people think about 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 report 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%) suffer more lumbar spine pain than
younger ones (12.4%), too. (3) More girls than boys report back pain. (4) As
researchers describe, Johnson Chiropractic notes that
Richmond kids with spine pain share some risk factors for Richmond back pain and
RISKS FOR Richmond BACK PAIN
What puts kids at risk of spine pain? Lots of things
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. Schoolchildren with moderate and severe pain had higher body mass indices, waist, hip and
waist-to-hip ratios. (2) Johnson Chiropractic assesses Richmond
back pain kids and adults to test for risks and create
a treatment plan to prevent them from turning out to be painful realities.
