Auburn Kids Benefit from Chiropractic & Nutritional Care

Kids and nutrition. Auburn kids don’t think about it. Auburn parents don’t always think about it. But Auburn nutrition is critical in Auburn kids’ spinal development and growth and Auburn chiropractic care. Good nutrition also boosts good spine and bone development which your Auburn chiropractor thinks about! Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. talks nutrition whenever the opportunity presents itself. A good Auburn nutritional foundation as a youth potentially leads to a healthier spinal life.


So what keeps Auburn young people and their Auburn 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) Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. knows that a life experience gets notice.


When do young people consider their nutritional status? At the same time it would get 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 describe cervical spine pain. 18% report 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 describe, Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. notes that Auburn kids with spine pain have some things in common that put them at risk for Auburn back pain and neck 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) 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) Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. evaluates Auburn back pain kids and adults to examine for risks and create a treatment plan to avert them from developing into painful realities.
