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.
WHAT’S HOLDING YOUTH BACK?
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 misperception
of nutrient sources. (1) Satterwhite Chiropractic knows that a life experience
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
RISKS FOR Oxford BACK 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.
