Kids and nutrition. Malverne
kids don’t think about it. Malverne parents don’t always think about
it. But Malverne nutrition is critical in Malverne
kids’ spinal development and growth and Malverne chiropractic care.
Good nutrition also encourages good spine and bone
development which your Malverne chiropractor thinks about!
Malverne Health & Wellness shares nutrition whenever the opportunity rises. A good Malverne nutritional foundation as a youth potentially leads to a healthier spinal life.
WHAT’S HOLDING YOUTH BACK?
So what keeps Malverne young people
and their Malverne parents from thinking about their nutritional
status? Expectedly the same things that hold young adults back - belief
their diet is correct, no symptomatology, and misperception
of nutrient sources. (1) Malverne Health & Wellness knows that a life experience
When do young people consider their
nutritional status? At the same time it would get the attention of
an adult - when there is pain. Incredibly, 71% of
schoolchildren aged 12-17 years say that they had at least one
episode of low back pain. (2) 17.4% of students report
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%) suffer more lumbar spine pain than
younger ones (12.4%), too. (3) More girls than boys report back pain. (4) As
researchers share, Malverne Health & Wellness sees that
Malverne kids with spine pain share some risk factors for Malverne back pain and
RISKS FOR Malverne BACK PAIN
What puts kids at risk of spine pain? Lots of factors
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) Malverne Health & Wellness assesses Malverne
back pain kids and adults to check for risks and set
a treatment plan to prevent them from developing
into painful realities.
