Inactivity and Children
Physical activity has many health benefits for young people. In 2018, WHO launched More Active People for a Healthier World, a new global action on physical activity, including new targets of a 15% relative reduction of global prevalence of insufficient physical activity by 2030 among adolescents and adults.
The authors of a recent review of data published in The Lancet, describe current prevalence and trends of insufficient physical activity among school-going adolescents aged 11–17 years by country, region, and globally.
The majority of adolescents do not meet current physical activity guidelines. Urgent scaling up of implementation of known effective policies and programmes is needed to increase activity in adolescents.
Investment and leadership at all levels to intervene on the multiple causes and inequities that might perpetuate the low participation in physical activity and sex differences, as well as engagement of youth themselves, will be vital to strengthen the opportunities for physical activity in all communities.
Such action will improve the health of this and future young generations and support achieving the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals.

Chiropractic and Maintenance Care
Maintenance Care is a traditional chiropractic approach, whereby patients continue treatment after optimum benefit is reached.
A review conducted in 1996 concluded that evidence behind this therapeutic strategy was lacking, and a second review from 2008 reached the same conclusion.
Since then, a systematic research program in the Nordic countries was undertaken to uncover the definition, indications, prevalence of use and beliefs regarding Maintenance Care to make it possible to investigate its clinical usefulness and cost-effectiveness.
As a result, an evidence-based clinical study could be performed. It was therefore timely to review the evidence.
The conclusion of this current review, published in the journal Chiropractic and Manual Therapies, found that knowledge of chiropractic Maintenance Care has advanced. There is reasonable consensus among chiropractors on what Maintenance Care is, how it should be used, and its indications.
Presently, Maintenance Care can be considered an evidence-based method to perform secondary or tertiary prevention in patients with previous episodes of low back pain, who report a good outcome from the initial treatments.
However, these results should not be interpreted as an indication for Maintenance Care on all patients, who receive chiropractic treatment.
