WHAT’S HOLDING YOUTH BACK?
So what keeps Lynchburg young people
and their Lynchburg 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) Palmer Chiropractic Center 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% tell of low back pain. Older
adolescents (24.4%) have more 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, Palmer Chiropractic Center notes that
Lynchburg kids with spine pain share some risk factors for Lynchburg back pain and
RISKS FOR Lynchburg 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) 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. Schoolchildren with moderate and severe pain had higher body mass indices, waist, hip and
waist-to-hip ratios. (2) Palmer Chiropractic Center evaluates Lynchburg
back pain kids and adults to test for risks and set
a treatment plan to prevent them from turning out to be painful realities.
