Kids and nutrition. Ashburn
kids don’t think about it. Ashburn parents don’t always think about
it. But Ashburn nutrition is critical in Ashburn
kids’ spinal development and growth and Ashburn chiropractic care.
Good nutrition also fosters good spine and bone
development which your Ashburn chiropractor thinks about!
Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn talks nutrition whenever the opportunity presents
itself. A good Ashburn nutritional foundation as a youth potentially contributes to a healthier spinal life.
WHAT’S HOLDING YOUTH BACK?
So what prevents Ashburn young people
and their Ashburn parents from thinking about their nutritional
status? Likely the same things that hold young adults back - belief
their diet is appropriate, no symptomatology, and misperception
of nutrient sources. (1) Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn 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. Incredibly, 71% of
schoolchildren aged 12-17 years report at least one
episode of low back pain. (2) 17.4% of students report
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%) feel more lumbar spine pain than
younger ones (12.4%), too. (3) More girls than boys report back pain. (4) As
researchers describe, Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn notices that
Ashburn kids with spine pain share some risk factors for Ashburn back pain and
RISKS FOR Ashburn 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. Schoolchildren with moderate and severe pain had higher body mass indices, waist, hip and
waist-to-hip ratios. (2) Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn evaluates Ashburn
back pain kids and adults to evaluate for risks and create
a treatment plan to prevent them from developing
into painful realities.
