WHAT’S HOLDING YOUTH BACK?

and their Baton Rouge parents from thinking about their nutritional
status? Likely the same things that hold young adults back - belief
their diet is appropriate, no symptomatology, and misperception
of nutrient sources. (1) Spine & Sports Rehab 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. Incredibly, 71% of
schoolchildren aged 12-17 years report at least one
episode of low back pain. (2) 17.4% of students describe
cervical spine pain. 18% report low back pain. Older
adolescents (24.4%) have more 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, Spine & Sports Rehab Center notes that
Baton Rouge kids with spine pain share some risk factors for Baton Rouge back pain and
RISKS FOR Baton Rouge 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) 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) Spine & Sports Rehab Center evaluates Baton Rouge

a treatment plan to thwart them from becoming painful realities.
