Kids and nutrition. Eugene
kids don’t think about it. Eugene parents don’t always think about
it. But Eugene nutrition is important in Eugene
kids’ spinal development and growth and Eugene chiropractic care.
Good nutrition also encourages good spine and bone
development which your Eugene chiropractor thinks about!
Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic shares nutrition whenever the opportunity presents
itself. A good Eugene nutritional foundation as a youth potentially leads to a healthier spinal life.
WHAT’S HOLDING YOUTH BACK?
So what keeps Eugene young people
and their Eugene parents from thinking about their nutritional
status? Likely the same things that hold young adults back - belief
their diet is correct, no symptomatology, and misperception
of nutrient sources. (1) Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic knows that a life experience
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 describe
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%) feel more lumbar spine pain than
younger ones (12.4%), too. (3) More girls than boys report back pain. (4) As
researchers describe, Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic notices that
Eugene kids with spine pain have some things in common that put
them at risk for Eugene back pain and
RISKS FOR Eugene 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. Schoolchildren with moderate and severe pain had higher body mass indices, waist, hip and
waist-to-hip ratios. (2) Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic evaluates Eugene
back pain kids and adults to test for risks and set
a treatment plan to thwart them from becoming painful realities.
