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.
WHAT’S HOLDING YOUTH BACK?
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 misperception
of nutrient sources. (1) Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. knows that a life experience
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
RISKS FOR Auburn 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) 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 set
a treatment plan to avert them from developing
into painful realities.
