Chiropractic Health Hints

WITH DR. STANLEY LEVINE, D.C.

SCIATICA CAN STRIKE YOUNG Sz OLD ALIKE

Sciatica, often regarded as an ailment of middle age, can strike any
age group at any time.
It does strike more often among the middle aged, and is more prevalent
among men than women, but it is not uncommon in young people as well.
But no matter the age of its victims, he or she will surely suffer from the pain.
Since the sciatic nerve bundles are the largest and longest in the human
body, it is not surprising that they are also the most susceptible to injury.
The pain of sciatica may appear anywhere in the region served by the sciatic
- - nerves, from the hips down through the legs and even into the feet.
Backache, lumbago or stiffness and muscle spasms in the low back often
precede the onset of. sciatica. Back pain may continue after the sciatica
appears or it may subside. Occasionally sciatica will develop without any prior symptoms.
The primary casue of sciatica is pressure, irritation, of or injury to the sciatic nerve. This is
generally caused by one or more of the vertebrae caused by one or more or of the vertebrae in
the spine becoming dislocated. This dislocation, called a subluxation, causes an interference with
the function of the nerves that pass between the malfunction of the part of the body served by
the affected nerve is the end result.
Liniments, pain pills, heat applications or ice packs may relieve the pain of sciatica, but the
victim can never count on being rid of the problem until the underlying cause, the displaced
vertebrae, is corrected. To achieve this correction, more and more people are turning to the Doc-
tor of Chiropractic. By correcting the spinal misalignment which has created the pinched nerve
condition, he sets the forces in motion for the body to heal itself from within.

Teen Diets

Continued from preceding page

Parents are invited •to attend
the first meeting only with
their teenager. "Parents are
sometimes part of the pro-
blem, expecially when the
children are sneaking food,"
says Cardeccia.
The Center for Childhood
Weight Management in . Farm-
ington Hills, with patients
from ages 6-17, has another
approach. Psychologist, Keith
Levick, uses the CANDY
philosophy, an acromyn for —
control, attitude, nutrition,
dieting and your self-esteem.
"Our emphasis is on food

management and we are not
restricted to diets," explains
Levick. Levick believes that it
is not a good idea to limit the
calories in growing children.
"If we restrict calories, we
deprive them of nutrients," he
says. This program stresses
behavior modification, exer-
cise and lifestyle changes.
Children meet weekly for
rotating sessions on diet, exer-
cise and behavior. Parents also
meet at the same time in
another group.
"I approach it as a family
prospective," says Levick. ❑

Dieting Do's And Don'ts

What does a typical
teenager eat in a day? If

they're on a diet, what should
they eat?
One diet program asked
teenagers to keep a daily
record of what they ate before
they started the diet plan. The
folowing is a typical. girl's food
diary. A typical boy's food
diary would be "the same, just
larger amounts?'
Breakfast: Nothing. ("They
skip breakfast!')
Lunch: bag of potato or corn
chips; 1 or 2 hot dogs, on
bun(s); 8 Oreo cookies or 1 to
2 candy bars; bottle of Coke
(maybe Diet Coke).
Midafternoon Snack: candy
bar.
Dinner: macaroni and
cheese; side dish of apple
sauce; 1 glass of milk.
Evening Snack: popcorn or
bowl of cereal.
What should they be eating?
Experts recommend that
teenagers eat from the four
food groups daily. As a
minimum, a teenager should
be eating:
• Four servings of dairy food
(an 8-ounce glass of milk
equals one serving; so does 8
ounces of yogurt);
• Four to six ounces of high
protein (meat, fish, chicken,
vegetarian
eggs,
combinations);
• Four servings of whole
grain breads and cereals; and
• Four servin0 of fruit
and/or vegetables (at least one
dark green, one deep yellow
vegetable, and one high
Vitamin C fruit or vegetable
daily).

Here are several do's and
don't's for successful dieting.
Thenagers can use the four
food groups and the recom-
mended daily servings, which
take into account the Recom-
mended Dietary Allowances,
as the basis for a diet.
Although there is no way to
lose weight without limiting
calories, experts do not recom-
mend cutting food levels below

1,200 calories per day because
it is hard for growing bodies to
get adequate nutrients below
that amount.
The best approach is a slow
weight loss. One major cau-
tion is not to get caught in the
yoyo syndrome, where you lose
weight and then gain it back.
Calorie counting alone,
however, will not work. There
must be a behavior modifica-
tion aspect to the regimen.
And the emotional support
teens get from their parents is
critical to successful dieting.
Parents should help them
focus on other aspects of their

Parents should be

disorders like
bulimia develop

dieting. Adults and
children should

physician before
beginning a diet.

lives, so the teen sees him or
herself as ' a whole person.
Their obesity must not
become an obsession in their
minds. Parents should also be
aware that eating disorders
like bulimia develop from
starvation dieting.
It goes without saying that
the weight loss goal should be
appropriate for the child's age
and height. Experts worry
many people in America, in-
cluding teenagers, do not have
realistic body images because
of the super thin athletic
models in all the ads — that's
not a natural body.
Experts believe there is a
national obsession with
weighing less and less, and
dieting in younger ages.
Adults and children should
consult their physician before
beginning a diet.
