Back pain in adolescents is real. It’s even reported that disc degeneration starts in the teens. (1) It is quite concerning to all involved: the patient, parent(s) and physician. Most back pain for adolescents is typically 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 effectively returns the pediatric back pain sufferer to pain-free activity. (2) That is where spinal manipulation in the hands of the Carrolltown chiropractor and Carrolltown chiropractic care plays a role at Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation.


In a paper about how to help kids with their back pain, spinal manipulation with exercise outdoes exercise alone. Spinal manipulation plus exercise was more useful at one year follow up as well. The 6 months’ follow-up showed the greatest differences between spinal manipulation and exercise. Other advantages are no treatment-related side effects plus bonuses in quality of life improvement and medication use, satisfaction and disability reduction. (3) Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation offers these benefits to Carrolltown adolescent back pain sufferers.

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