development which your Baton Rouge chiropractor thinks about!

WHAT’S HOLDING YOUTH BACK?
So what keeps Baton Rouge young people
and their Baton Rouge parents from thinking about their nutritional
status? Likely the same things that hold young adults back - belief
their diet is correct, no symptomatology, and misperception
of nutrient sources. (1) Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation 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. Incredibly, 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 share, Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation notes that
Baton Rouge kids with spine pain have some things in common that put
them at risk for Baton Rouge back pain and
RISKS FOR Baton Rouge 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) 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. These moderate and severe
pain schoolchildren had higher body mass indices, waist, hip and
waist-to-hip ratios. (2) Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation evaluates Baton Rouge
back pain kids and adults to check for risks and create
a treatment plan to avert them from becoming painful realities.
