As August comes to a close, excitement is in the air while students and teachers prepare for a new school year. Your to-do list probably includes getting new school supplies, new clothes, and open houses, and it is especially important to remember to take care of your health during this busy time of year. An excellent addition to your back to school routine is to care of your back with chiropractic care. Here’s why:
Because Backpacks are Heavy
Have you ever stopped to think about just how much stress a heavy backpack puts on the back? Backpacks can cause spinal misalignments, especially when they are thrown over one shoulder and excess strain is put on the back, neck, and shoulders. Regular chiropractic adjustments can help alleviate that stress and keep the spine in proper alignment, thus preventing discomfort. Be sure that in addition to regular chiropractic adjustments, backpacks are kept light and worn properly.
Because Better Health Means Increased Energy
Going back to school can seem exhausting after a fun, carefree summer. Whether you’re a teacher, parent, or student, this time of year can be draining. Regular chiropractic care can boost energy levels and ensure that it is being used effectively and efficiently. When the spine is properly aligned, the central nervous system is able to work at its fullest capacity. Therefore, the body uses energy efficiently, too. Will there still be feelings of fatigue? Sure. But with proper rest and regular chiropractic adjustments, the body will be more comfortable (allowing for better rest) and functioning optimally.
Because Stress Relief is a Good Thing
Going back to school is exciting, but also stressful. Feelings of stress are more obvious for high school and college-aged kids. Loads of homework and tight schedules make for a stressful day. But even little ones can experience school-induced stress. Chiropractic care can help relieve that stress as it keeps the body relaxed. When the body is calm, it is easier for the mind to be calm. In fact, any of our patients report feeling stress relief as just another added bonus of chiropractic care.
