Nashua Kids Benefit from Chiropractic & Nutritional Care

June 13, 2017

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


So what prevents Nashua young people and their Nashua 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) Moriarty Chiropractic knows that a life experience gets 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 recount 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%) experience more lumbar spine pain than younger ones (12.4%), too. (3) More girls than boys report back pain. (4) As researchers describe, Moriarty Chiropractic notices that Nashua kids with spine pain have some things in common that put them at risk for Nashua back pain and neck 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) Moriarty Chiropractic assesses Nashua back pain kids and adults to check for risks and set a treatment plan to avert them from becoming painful realities.
