Paramus Kids Benefit from Chiropractic & Nutritional Care

Kids and nutrition. Paramus kids don’t think about it. Paramus parents don’t always think about it. But Paramus nutrition is important in Paramus kids’ spinal development and growth and Paramus chiropractic care. Good nutrition also boosts good spine and bone development which your Paramus chiropractor thinks about! Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center talks nutrition whenever the opportunity arises. A good Paramus nutritional foundation as a youth quite possibly leads to a healthier spinal life.


So what keeps Paramus young people and their Paramus parents from thinking about their nutritional status? Likely the same things that hold young adults back - belief their diet is appropriate, no symptomatology, and confusion over nutrient sources. (1) Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center knows that a life experience draws notice.


When do young people consider 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% tell of low back pain. Older adolescents (24.4%) have more cervical spine pain than younger ones (11.9%). Older adolescents (25.1%) suffer more lumbar spine pain than younger ones (12.4%), too. (3) More girls than boys report back pain. (4) As researchers share, Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center notices that Paramus kids with spine pain share some risk factors for Paramus 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) 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) Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center assesses Paramus back pain kids and adults to examine for risks and set a treatment plan to avert them from becoming painful realities.


What’s a parent to do? Care for the kids and their Paramus spines. Check with your Paramus chiropractic physician. Set a treatment plan that motivates them to be more physical, eat more healthily, take supplements as needed, and be treated with spinal manipulation. It helps!
