WHAT’S HOLDING YOUTH BACK?

and their Pflugerville 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) Pflugerville Wellness Center knows that a life experience
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 describe
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%) experience more lumbar spine pain than
younger ones (12.4%), too. (3) More girls than boys report back pain. (4) As
researchers share, Pflugerville Wellness Center sees that

RISKS FOR Pflugerville 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. Schoolchildren with moderate and severe pain had higher body mass indices, waist, hip and
waist-to-hip ratios. (2) Pflugerville Wellness Center assesses Pflugerville
back pain kids and adults to examine for risks and set
a treatment plan to avert them from becoming painful realities.
