A Healthy School Year With Chiropractic Care
By Donna Stark
Sadly, the summer of 2019 is on its way out and that means it is time for all of our children to head back to school. It's a busy time for our children as they meet their teachers, share their schedules with friends, and plan who to sit with during lunch. It's also a busy time for us parents as we try to figure out how the carpool is going to work, which stores have the best sales, and what is left on the need-to-buy list. No matter how busy we are though, it's important that we remember to take notice of our children's health because every child deserves to start their school year on a healthy note. And you can do that with the help of your local chiropractor at The Joint Chiropractic! Take a look.
Stress and Backpacks
When we hear someone say a person is carrying the weight of the world on his or her shoulders, we generally think of stress, but in addition to the stress that comes with school, your child is also carrying the weight of the world ... quite literally. Have you picked up your child's backpack recently? Heavy backpacks can cause the spine to shift out of alignment which can lead to excess stress on the neck, shoulders, and back. Chiropractic care can alleviate the stress and reduce any pain that pops up from it. Your child can also take steps to keep the backpack as light as possible by removing items and wearing it on both shoulders.
As for the other weight on your child's shoulders, chiropractic can also help to relieve the school-related stress and anxiety that arises from homework assignments, tests, relationships, and competitions.
Productivity and Energy
After a fun and care-free summer, school can seem exhausting for even the best of students! Fortunately, chiropractic care can help by boosting your child's energy and ensuring that the energy is being used where it should be. It also helps to improve sleep, concentration, and memory which can improve your child's productivity during the day.
Health and Athletics
Sick days and sports injuries can wreak havoc on anyone's schedule, so do your part and help reduce the risk of occurrence by bringing your child in to see your local chiropractor. Chiropractic care can boost the body's immune system, enhance your child's athletic performance, and decrease the odds of sustaining an injury. If your child has already been hurt, chiropractic care can also help alleviate the pain and speed the healing and recovery process.
