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.
WHAT’S HOLDING YOUTH BACK?
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
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
RISKS FOR Paramus 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) 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.
