It’s time to get your children geared up to go back to school with new clothes and school supplies. Have you thought about checking up on their health? Chiropractic care can help children improve their health and wellness, and manage the aches and pains that come with growing up. Why should you get your child ready for school with chiropractic care?
School Sports Physicals
If your child is planning to participate in sports during the school year, the state will require that they have a full pre-participation sports physical completed. Doctors of Chiropractic are approved to complete these examinations and make sure it is safe for your child to play sports. Along with baseline vitals, height and weight, the doctor also checks the ears, throat, heart and lungs. They then complete a full musculoskeletal exam for strength, range of motion and posture. This can bring to light any underlying issues that can impact a child’s ability to safely participate in sports. You will also complete a medical history questionnaire to detect any red flags that might come up on health issues.
Manage Misalignments After a Summer of Fun
Children grow rapidly, and will go through growth spurts that can cause spine subluxations. They also may have additional aches and pains from doing different activities over the summer, such as swimming, biking, visiting theme parks and slumber parties with friends. Does your child like to play video games? With the extra free time over the summer break they may have developed poor posture in front of a screen. Getting an evaluation and treatment with chiropractic care can help get the spine back in proper alignment so they can have better overall health.
Improve Nervous System for Better Learning
Studies show that spinal adjustments can lead to better nerve function and can improve sensory input to the brain. Your child might have trouble concentrating or difficulty in school or trouble remembering things. A better functioning nervous system can help. Realigning spinal subluxations improves the nervous systems ability to send signals between the brain to other parts of the body. Chiropractic care has the potential to improve mood, memory, and focus- all important components to thriving in the classroom.
