A Back to School Guide From the Family Chiropractors in Jupiter, Palm Beach Gardens, and Port St. Lucie
As the summer months head toward their seasonal exit, the thoughts of kids and parents alike turn toward a brand-new school year. There are backpacks to purchase, sports to try out for, and new friends to make. But there are also some physical challenges that accompany this time of year -- and that's when you need advice from the chiropractor Jupiter, FL relies on. Here is some back to school tips from your friends at Papa Chiropractic & Physical Therapy.
- Schedule a spinal screening - Your child's musculoskeletal system is about to be challenged in many different ways, from everyday play activities to organized school sports and lugging around various heavy items. We can conduct a back to school spinal screening to make sure everything is ready for action, making helpful corrections as needed.
- Practice backpack safety - Choose the right-sized backpack for your returning student, one that offers two adjustable shoulder straps and doesn't extend way below the waistline. Make sure your child knows how to load it safely and evenly, with heavy items at the bottom, and ask teachers about homework options that don't require transporting massive books.
- Make posture a priority - There's a right way and a wrong way to sit and stand, and the right way can help prevent a lot of strain and discomfort throughout the school year. Our Family chiropractor can evaluate your child's posture and suggest smarter posture practices.
- Get your kids up to speed on sports health - Do your little athletes know how to reduce the risks of strains, sprains and overuse injuries? Our Family chiropractor can provide a wealth of information on how to limber up, cool down, and build strength and flexibility.
