Kids and nutrition. Largo
kids don’t think about it. Largo parents don’t always think about
it. But Largo nutrition is important in Largo
kids’ spinal development and growth and Largo chiropractic care.
Good nutrition also fosters good spine and bone
development which your Largo chiropractor thinks about!
Hollstrom & Associates Inc shares nutrition whenever the opportunity presents
itself. A good Largo nutritional foundation as a youth potentially leads to a healthier spinal life.
WHAT’S HOLDING YOUTH BACK?
So what prevents Largo young people
and their Largo parents from thinking about their nutritional
status? Expectedly the same things that hold young adults back - belief
their diet is appropriate, no symptomatology, and confusion over nutrient sources. (1) Hollstrom & Associates Inc 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 say that they had 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%) experience more lumbar spine pain than
younger ones (12.4%), too. (3) More girls than boys report back pain. (4) As
researchers describe, Hollstrom & Associates Inc notes that
Largo kids with spine pain share some risk factors for Largo back pain and
RISKS FOR Largo 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. These moderate and severe
pain schoolchildren had higher body mass indices, waist, hip and
waist-to-hip ratios. (2) Hollstrom & Associates Inc assesses Largo
back pain kids and adults to check for risks and create
a treatment plan to thwart them from turning out to be painful realities.
