San Jose Kids Benefit from Chiropractic & Nutritional Care

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.


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 draws notice.


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 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) 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.


What is a parent to do? Care for the kids and their San Jose spines. Consult your San Jose chiropractic physician. Set a treatment plan that inspires them to be more physical, eat more nutritiously, take supplements as needed, and be treated with spinal manipulation. It helps!
