Put Chiropractic on Your Back to School List

By Sara Butler

As summer winds down and a new school year is on the horizon, you suddenly find yourself with a lot of things to do. You have to buy school supplies, meet new teachers, and sign up for classes. Just don't forget to add chiropractic care to your list. Here's how chiropractic care can help you and your family start the school year off the right way!

School is Stressful!

Summers are a time to kick back and relax, maybe go on a vacation or two. It can be difficult to get back into the swing of things when it's time to start school again. For children, going back to school can be stressful. After all, there are all those new class jitters to deal with emotionally, as well as heavy backpacks, sports, and exposure to all kinds of germs that can be physically taxing as well. That's why it's important to give your children every advantage to start the school year off right with chiropractic care.

Backpacks: Back Breaking

Your child probably wants the coolest new Fortnite backpack or something equally charming to show off when school resumes, but trendy backpack choices now can lead to problems down the road.

Make sure that no matter how cool the backpack looks that it has wide and padded ergonomic straps to help carry the load. It also should be made of durable material with additional padding on the back to help cushion where it rests against the spine.

It's also important to be mindful about how a backpack is packed and the ways your child wants to wear it. Shoulder straps should both be worn at all times to help balance the weight of the pack and fit snug up against the back too.

Also, make sure that the backpack doesn't hit below the waist. It should never reach all the way to your child's legs. And when you're packing it, put the heaviest items closest to the body with lighter items farther away. The weight of the backpack should never exceed about 10 percent of your child's total body weight, either.

See the Chiropractor

Chiropractic care is for people of all ages, so help your child's body work optimally with regular visits to the chiropractor. That should help them to stay strong and bolster their immune system in order to counteract all the bugs they come into contact with in school.

Make this the best school year ever by incorporating chiropractic care into your back to school routine!
