Back to School and Back Pain: Yes, It's Linked!

By Genevieve Cunningham

Back-to-school season is among us. For most people, that means getting used to a new schedule, stocking up on new clothes and supplies, and making new friends. But for others, the back-to-school season isn't quite that much fun. Why? Because it hurts! Believe it or not, back pain and the back-to-school season is linked for kids of all ages. But why? And more importantly, what can we do about it? If you want your kids to have a healthy and happy school year, take a look at how to deal with the pain starting now. 

The School-Back Pain Connection

When it's time to go back to school, back pain probably isn't your first thought or concern. You're thinking about the expense, the time demands, the challenge, even the increase of illness. But back pain? Surprising to many, the back-to-school season definitely has a connection with back pain. You're suddenly in a desk more often, carrying around a heavy bag every day, and probably not getting enough exercise. It's no wonder that back pain tends to crop up and plague the masses during this time of year.

Ways to Cope

There are plenty of ways to cope with the new demands and the pain that come into your life during the school year. For starters, make sure you're getting enough rest. Rest is crucial for healing and strengthening the body as a whole. You should also strive for regular movement, a healthy diet, good posture, and supportive shoes and accessories to keep your back and whole body in better condition.

Why You Should Probably See a Chiropractor

Along with making some small changes to your day, it's also a good idea to see the chiropractor. Chiropractors are one of the best resources for eliminating back pain from your life. They'll use manual manipulation to adjust the spine, release tension, and ease the pain. If these visits are made on a regular basis, you can also expect a bit of prevention. The regular adjustments serve to keep back pain at bay for many people. If back pain is part of your back-to-school hardships, let the chiropractor get you moving down a healthier, pain-free path.
