Kids and nutrition. Brooks
kids don’t think about it. Brooks parents don’t always think about
it. But Brooks nutrition is critical in Brooks
kids’ spinal development and growth and Brooks chiropractic care.
Good nutrition also fosters good spine and bone
development which your Brooks chiropractor thinks about!
Soft Health and Healing Clinic talks nutrition whenever the opportunity presents
itself. A good Brooks nutritional foundation as a youth potentially contributes to a healthier spinal life.
WHAT’S HOLDING YOUTH BACK?
So what keeps Brooks young people
and their Brooks 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) Soft Health and Healing Clinic 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 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%) feel more lumbar spine pain than
younger ones (12.4%), too. (3) More girls than boys report back pain. (4) As
researchers describe, Soft Health and Healing Clinic notes that
Brooks kids with spine pain share some risk factors for Brooks back pain and
RISKS FOR Brooks 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. These moderate and severe
pain schoolchildren had higher body mass indices, waist, hip and
waist-to-hip ratios. (2) Soft Health and Healing Clinic evaluates Brooks
back pain kids and adults to test for risks and set
a treatment plan to thwart them from turning out to be painful realities.
