Oxford Kids Benefit from Chiropractic & Nutritional Care

Kids and nutrition. Oxford kids don’t think about it. Oxford parents don’t always think about it. But Oxford nutrition is critical in Oxford kids’ spinal development and growth and Oxford chiropractic care. Good nutrition also encourages good spine and bone development which your Oxford chiropractor thinks about! Satterwhite Chiropractic talks nutrition whenever the opportunity presents itself. A good Oxford nutritional foundation as a youth quite possibly contributes to a healthier spinal life.


So what prevents Oxford young people and their Oxford parents from thinking about their nutritional status? Expectedly the same things that hold young adults back - belief their diet is correct, no symptomatology, and confusion over nutrient sources. (1) Satterwhite Chiropractic knows that a life experience gets notice.


When do young people think about 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 report at least one episode of low back pain. (2) 17.4% of students report 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, Satterwhite Chiropractic notices that Oxford kids with spine pain have some things in common that put them at risk for Oxford back pain and neck 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) 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) Satterwhite Chiropractic evaluates Oxford back pain kids and adults to test for risks and set a treatment plan to avert them from turning out to be painful realities.
