Good nutrition also fosters good spine and bone development which your Manahawkin chiropractor thinks about! Manahawkin Chiropractic Center shares nutrition whenever the opportunity rises. A good Manahawkin nutritional foundation as a youth quite possibly contributes to a healthier spinal life.


So what prevents Manahawkin young people and their Manahawkin 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) Manahawkin Chiropractic Center knows that a life experience draws awareness.


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 report at least one episode of low back pain. (2) 17.4% of students report 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%) suffer more lumbar spine pain than younger ones (12.4%), too. (3) More girls than boys report back pain. (4) As researchers describe, Manahawkin Chiropractic Center notes that Manahawkin kids with spine pain share some risk factors for Manahawkin 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) Manahawkin Chiropractic Center assesses Manahawkin back pain kids and adults to check for risks and create a treatment plan to avert them from becoming painful realities.
