Vancouver Chiropractic Care with Spinal Manipulation and Exercise Relieves Adolescent Back Pain

There is nothing like seeing pain in a child to upset a parent more. Vancouver back pain in adolescents does happen. Vancouver chiropractic care eases Vancouver back pain for many adults and kids. When it comes to Vancouver chiropractic care of adolescent back pain, Vancouver Disc Centers may well include spinal manipulation along with exercise which return the adolescent back to being a kid!


Back pain in adolescents is real. It is even reported that disc degeneration starts in the second decade of life. (1) It is rather disconcerting to everyone: the patient, parent(s) and physician. Most back pain for adolescents is usually muscle strain- or poor mechanics-related as the spine is not yet fully mature. The forces encountered while playing sports may predispose a young person for injury. Luckily, conservative, non-operative care successfully gets the pediatric back pain sufferer to pain-free activity. (2) That’s where spinal manipulation in the hands of the Vancouver chiropractor and Vancouver chiropractic care plays a role at Vancouver Disc Centers.


In a paper about how to assist adolescents with their back pain, spinal manipulation with exercise outdoes exercise alone. Spinal manipulation plus exercise was more successful at one year follow up, too. At 6 months patient outcomes showed the greatest differences between spinal manipulation and exercise. Other advantages are no treatment-related side effects in addition to bonuses in quality of life improvement and medication use, satisfaction and disability reduction. (3) Vancouver Disc Centers successfully helps Vancouver adolescent back pain sufferers. Vancouver Disc Centers does everything possible to get our young back pain sufferers moving again!


Since degenerative disc disease is documented to start in youth, it’s sensible to start feeding the discs of youth. Much attention is given to teenage calcium supplementation for osteoporosis prevention in later years while adolescent supplementation for disc degeneration prevention and care is not generally discussed. Vancouver Disc Centersmay well suggest a disc health supplement that has chondroitin sulfate and glucosamine sulfate since Vancouver back pain has already started in the adolescent’s life. Vancouver chiropractic care of spinal manipulation, nutrition and exercise is valuable!
