Mandeville Kids Benefit from Chiropractic & Nutritional Care

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


So what prevents Mandeville young people and their Mandeville parents from thinking about their nutritional status? Likely the same things that hold young adults back - belief their diet is appropriate, no symptomatology, and misperception of nutrient sources. (1) Mandeville 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 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%) have more cervical spine pain than younger ones (11.9%). Older adolescents (25.1%) experience more lumbar spine pain than younger ones (12.4%), too. (3) More girls than boys report back pain. (4) As researchers describe, Mandeville Chiropractic notes that Mandeville kids with spine pain share some risk factors for Mandeville 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) 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) Mandeville Chiropractic assesses Mandeville back pain kids and adults to examine for risks and create a treatment plan to avert them from becoming painful realities.


What is a parent to do? Care for the kids and their Mandeville spines. Consult your Mandeville chiropractic physician. Set a treatment plan that inspires them to be more active, eat more nutritiously, take supplements as necessary, and be treated with spinal manipulation. It helps!
