Kids and nutrition. San Jose
kids don’t think about it. San Jose parents don’t always think about
it. But San Jose nutrition is critical in San Jose
kids’ spinal development and growth and San Jose chiropractic care.
Good nutrition also boosts good spine and bone
development which your San Jose chiropractor thinks about!
McMurray Chiropractic Solutions shares nutrition whenever the opportunity presents
itself. A good San Jose nutritional foundation as a youth potentially contributes to a healthier spinal life.
WHAT’S HOLDING YOUTH BACK?
So what prevents San Jose young people
and their San Jose 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) McMurray Chiropractic Solutions knows that a life experience
When do young people think about 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 report at least one
episode of low back pain. (2) 17.4% of students report
cervical spine pain. 18% tell of 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 share, McMurray Chiropractic Solutions notices that
San Jose kids with spine pain share some risk factors for San Jose back pain and
RISKS FOR San Jose 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. These moderate and severe
pain schoolchildren had higher body mass indices, waist, hip and
waist-to-hip ratios. (2) McMurray Chiropractic Solutions evaluates San Jose
back pain kids and adults to examine for risks and set
a treatment plan to prevent them from developing
into painful realities.
