It’s Spinal Health Week, and here at Little Sprouts Chiropractic we are passionate about the health of our practice members big and SMALL. Why kids, you may ask? Because early intervention allow for a greater chance of a positive outcome, just like the research tells us.
It has long been said that early intervention, or even prevention, will provide the best chance for an optimal outcome. Infact, changes in our lifestyles early in life can have profound effects on our health long term. Changes as simple as increasing our daily activity and dietary modification (1,2).
In previous posts we have talked about the rates of back pain, and recurrence of back pain within the adult population, but what about the kids? The statistics are fairly similar; up to 50% of kids will have an episode of back pain or other musculoskeletal problem per year. It has also been suggested that those who experience back pain as an adolescent have an increased chance of long term issues as an adult (1,2).
