School Causing Pain? Here's What You Can Do

By Genevieve Cunningham

School is back in session and in full swing. In some ways, this is a lot of fun. Kids are involved and thriving, and parents are enjoying seeing their kids succeed. But in other ways, life is a little harder. Everyone is running from place to place with busy schedules, and many kids are complaining of health concerns. While there is little to be done about the mountain of germs that are bombarding schools, there may be a lot that we can do about the aches and pains that come with school. If your kids are complaining of pain, take a look at these ways to reduce their discomfort so that they can reach their full potential.

Types of Pain

Pain comes in all shapes and sizes, but some of the most common school-related pains include:

  • Headaches - Between stress, extra work, less sleep, and busy schedules, it’s no wonder that kids complain of headaches regularly.

  • Back pain - School means that kids are more active and on their feet much more than they have been in the past. This can lead to varying degrees of back pain depending on the child.

  • Joint stiffness - Sitting behind a desk for hours can make the joints stiff and sore. And unfortunately, it can be difficult to shake this discomfort. Kids may begin to complain of pain in the knees, hips, fingers, and wrists as school and sedentary time progress.

Why You Should Visit the Chiropractor

It’s surprising to many parents, but regular trips to the chiropractor may help your kids deal with the pains of school. Chiropractors use gentle manipulation to remove joint restrictions from the body. This treatment plan can ease pains, improve mobility, and enhance the overall health of the patient -- whether that patient is an adult or a child. It’s safe and effective, and because it doesn’t have to happen every day, it fits well into an already busy schedule. If your child is in pain, seeing a chiropractor may be a great way to heal their body and get them through the school year.
