Vancouver Kids Benefit from Chiropractic & Nutritional Care

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


So what prevents Vancouver young people and their Vancouver 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) Vancouver Spine Care Centre knows that a life experience draws attention.


When do young people consider 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 say that they had at least one episode of low back pain. (2) 17.4% of students recount cervical spine pain. 18% state 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, Vancouver Spine Care Centre sees that Vancouver kids with spine pain share some risk factors for Vancouver 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) 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) Vancouver Spine Care Centre assesses Vancouver back pain kids and adults to check for risks and create a treatment plan to avert them from developing into painful realities.
