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

Seeing a child in pain concerns a parent. McHenry back pain in adolescents occurs. McHenry chiropractic care eases McHenry back pain for many adults and kids. When it comes to McHenry chiropractic care of adolescent back pain, OrthoIllinois Chiropractic may well incorporate spinal manipulation along with exercise which return the adolescent back to being a kid!


Back pain in adolescents is real. It’s even reported that disc degeneration starts in the teens. (1) It is quite disconcerting to all involved: 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. Sports forces may set up a young person for injury. Fortunately, conservative, non-operative care successfully returns the pediatric back pain sufferer to activity without the pain. (2) That is where spinal manipulation in the hands of the McHenry chiropractor and McHenry chiropractic care plays a role at OrthoIllinois Chiropractic.


In a paper about how to help kids deal with their back pain, spinal manipulation with exercise beats exercise alone. Spinal manipulation plus exercise was more useful 12 months later, too. At 6 months patient outcomes showed the greatest differences between spinal manipulation and exercise. Other advantages are no treatment-related side effects and bonuses in quality of life improvement and medication use, satisfaction and disability reduction. (3) OrthoIllinois Chiropractic successfully helps McHenry adolescent back pain sufferers. OrthoIllinois Chiropractic does everything possible to get our young back pain sufferers moving again!


Since degenerative disc disease is known to begin in youth, it is wise to start feeding the discs of youth. Much attention is paid to teenage calcium supplementation for osteoporosis prevention in older folks while adolescent supplementation for disc degeneration prevention and care is not generally discussed. OrthoIllinois Chiropracticmay well suggest a disc health supplement that contains chondroitin sulfate and glucosamine sulfate since McHenry back pain has already made an appearance in the adolescent’s life. McHenry chiropractic care of spinal manipulation, nutrition and exercise is valuable!
