New York Kids Benefit from Chiropractic & Nutritional Care

Kids and nutrition. New York kids don’t think about it. New York parents don’t always think about it. But New York nutrition is important in New York kids’ spinal development and growth and New York chiropractic care. Good nutrition also boosts good spine and bone development which your New York chiropractor thinks about! Dr. Gary Stefanick talks nutrition whenever the opportunity presents itself. A good New York nutritional foundation as a youth quite possibly contributes to a healthier spinal life.

WHAT’S HOLDING YOUTH BACK?

So what keeps New York young people and their New York parents from thinking about their nutritional status? Expectedly the same things that hold young adults back - belief their diet is correct, no symptomatology, and misperception of nutrient sources. (1) Dr. Gary Stefanick knows that a life experience draws notice.

WAKE-UP CALLS

When do young people think about their nutritional status? At the same time it would get 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 recount cervical spine pain. 18% tell of low back pain. Older adolescents (24.4%) are affected more by 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, Dr. Gary Stefanick sees that New York kids with spine pain have some things in common that put them at risk for New York back pain and neck pain.

RISKS FOR New York 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. Schoolchildren with moderate and severe pain had higher body mass indices, waist, hip and waist-to-hip ratios. (2) Dr. Gary Stefanick evaluates New York back pain kids and adults to test for risks and set a treatment plan to avert them from turning out to be painful realities.
