Dynamic Chiropractic – July 17, 1995, Vol. 13, Issue 15

Kids Need Chiropractic MORE

By Editorial Staff
What is the prevalence of low back pain for children ages 7 - 17?

Point Prevalence - 16%

Lifetime Prevalence - 33%

Lifetime Disability - 10%

The point prevalence (those currently experiencing low back pain) for adults is less than 9%.

This means that children need chiropractic care (just for low back pain) twice as much as their parents.
