Back to School Basics: Why Chiropractic Care Should Be Included
By Genevieve Cunningham
It’s almost August which means the local stores are stocked with all of your back to school necessities. This time of year is always two-fold: Exciting and so stressful. Since now is prime time for back to school preparation, it’s time to take note of the things you should do that don’t include new school supplies, brand new shoes, or that fall wardrobe. It’s time to take notice of your health! A great addition to your return to school routine is to add chiropractic care. It might seem like an odd choice, but it can be incredibly beneficial. Take a look at these ways in which chiropractic care may help get you ready for school in just a few short weeks.
Because Backpacks are Heavy
You may not have known this, but your backpack may be ruining the health of your back. Heavy backpacks, especially when thrown over one shoulder, can lead to misalignments of the spine and excess stress on the back and neck. Chiropractors may help to alleviate this stress and properly align the spine to quell the discomfort. As a bonus tip, it can also be helpful to keep your backpack light and wear it properly supported over both shoulders.
Because Better Health Equals More Energy
One of the most exhausting times of the year is the beginning of school. It just … takes it out of you. Chiropractic care may be able to help by ensuring that your energy and resources aren’t being used in other places. With a properly aligned spine, your central nervous system works more efficiently, which helps you use energy more efficiently as well. Will you still be tired? Absolutely! But, a more comfortable and stable body will certainly help in the back to school process.
Because Stress Relief is a Good Thing
School is stressful. For older teens and college aged kids, the stress is obvious. Piles of homework and tight schedules make for a stressful day. But even little ones are susceptible to school-induced stress. Chiropractic care may help by keeping the body in a more relaxed state. The calmer the body, the easier it is to keep the mind calm as well, which is why so many report stress relief as a wonderful side effect of regular care.
