Kids and nutrition. West Palm Beach kids don’t think about it. West Palm Beach parents don’t always think about it. But West Palm Beach nutrition is critical in West Palm Beach kids’ spinal development and growth and West Palm Beach chiropractic care. Good nutrition also encourages good spine and bone development which your West Palm Beach chiropractor thinks about! Moses Chiropractic shares nutrition whenever the opportunity presents itself. A good West Palm Beach nutritional foundation as a youth potentially leads to a healthier spinal life.


So what keeps West Palm Beach young people and their West Palm Beach parents from thinking about their nutritional status? Likely the same things that hold young adults back - belief their diet is appropriate, no symptomatology, and confusion over nutrient sources. (1) Moses Chiropractic knows that a life experience draws attention.


When do young people consider 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 say that they had 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 describe, Moses Chiropractic notes that West Palm Beach kids with spine pain share some risk factors for West Palm Beach 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) Being inactive increases the odds of having neck and back pain in adolescents. (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) Moses Chiropractic evaluates West Palm Beach back pain kids and adults to examine for risks and set a treatment plan to avert them from becoming painful realities.
