WHAT’S HOLDING YOUTH BACK?
So what prevents Watertown young people
and their Watertown parents from thinking about their nutritional
status? Likely the same things that hold young adults back - belief
their diet is correct, no symptomatology, and confusion over nutrient sources. (1) Watertown Wellness Center knows that a life experience
When do young people consider their
nutritional status? At the same time it would get the attention of
an adult - when there is pain. Amazingly, 71% of
schoolchildren aged 12-17 years say that they had 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%) are affected more by 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, Watertown Wellness Center sees that
Watertown kids with spine pain have some things in common that put
them at risk for Watertown back pain and
RISKS FOR Watertown BACK PAIN
What puts kids at risk of spine pain? Lots of factors
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) Watertown Wellness Center evaluates Watertown
back pain kids and adults to examine for risks and create
a treatment plan to thwart them from developing
into painful realities.
