Montreal Kids Benefit from Chiropractic & Nutritional Care

Kids and nutrition. Montreal kids don’t think about it. Montreal parents don’t always think about it. But Montreal nutrition is important in Montreal kids’ spinal development and growth and Montreal chiropractic care. Good nutrition also fosters good spine and bone development which your Montreal chiropractor thinks about! Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic talks nutrition whenever the opportunity presents itself. A good Montreal nutritional foundation as a youth potentially contributes to a healthier spinal life.


So what prevents Montreal young people and their Montreal 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. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic knows that a life experience draws 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 say that they had at least one episode of low back pain. (2) 17.4% of students recount 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%) experience more lumbar spine pain than younger ones (12.4%), too. (3) More girls than boys report back pain. (4) As researchers share, Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic notices that Montreal kids with spine pain have some things in common that put them at risk for Montreal 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) 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. These moderate and severe pain schoolchildren had higher body mass indices, waist, hip and waist-to-hip ratios. (2) Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic evaluates Montreal back pain kids and adults to evaluate for risks and create a treatment plan to prevent them from developing into painful realities.


What is a parent to do? Care for the kids and their Montreal spines. Consult your Montreal chiropractic physician. Establish a treatment plan that motivates them to be more active, eat more healthily, take supplements as needed, and be treated with spinal manipulation.It’s helpful!
