Malverne Kids Benefit from Chiropractic & Nutritional Care

Kids and nutrition. Malverne kids don’t think about it. Malverne parents don’t always think about it. But Malverne nutrition is important 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.


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 draws attention.


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 neck 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.


What’s a parent to do? Care for the kids and their Malverne spines. Check with your Malverne chiropractic physician. Establish a treatment plan that motivates them to be more active, eat more nutritiously, take supplements as necessary, and be treated with spinal manipulation.It’s helpful!
