Back pain in adolescents is real. It is even reported that disc degeneration begins in the second decade of life. (1) It is rather disconcerting to all involved: the patient, parent(s) and physician. Most back pain for adolescents is usually muscle strain- or poor mechanics-related as the spine is skeletally immature yet. The forces encountered while playing sports may predispose a young person for injury. Fortunately, conservative, non-operative care successfully returns the pediatric back pain sufferer to activity without the pain. (2) That’s where spinal manipulation in the hands of the Manahawkin chiropractor and Manahawkin chiropractic care plays a role at Manahawkin Chiropractic Center.


In a study of how to help adolescents deal with their back pain, spinal manipulation with exercise outdoes exercise alone. Spinal manipulation plus exercise was more effective at one year follow up as well. The 6 months’ follow-up showed the greatest differences between spinal manipulation and exercise. Other benefits are no treatment-related side effects and bonuses in quality of life improvement and medication use, satisfaction and disability reduction.

Since degenerative disc disease is known to start in youth, it’s wise to commence feeding the discs of youth. Much attention is given to teenage calcium supplementation for osteoporosis prevention in later years while adolescent supplementation for disc degeneration prevention and care isn’t widely discussed. Manahawkin Chiropractic Centermay well suggest a disc health supplement that has chondroitin sulfate and glucosamine sulfate since Manahawkin back pain has already made an appearance in the adolescent’s life. Manahawkin chiropractic care of spinal manipulation, nutrition and exercise is valuable!
