Back to School Adjustments for Kids

We made it back-to-school, now let’s set the kids up for success this school year!

Back to school is never easy – school supply shopping lists, early alarm clocks, and the anxieties of meeting new classmates and teachers. It is also physically stressful for kids of all ages, as they carry heavy backpacks, spend hours looking at computer or tablet screens (often with poor posture), and are sore from the return of after school sports.

Now that your family has made it back to school, don’t forget to keep adjustments in your family’s routine. Adjustments are beneficial for children of all ages, helping with conditions from bed-wetting, stressed immune systems, sore muscles, growing pains, and much more.

As Dr Bryan Zales explains, “Back to school can be a stressful time for our kids. Their developing immune systems will be bombarded by cold and flu bugs daily. Their growing spines will be carrying heavy loads in improperly fitting backpacks. Fortunately, Kambeitz Chiropractic takes back to school very seriously. Chiropractic adjustments help the spine become more resilient and boost the immune system. Myofascial release therapy relaxes the tension and tightness in their muscles. Exercise helps to strengthen the body and gain postural strength. For my son Colter, I increase the frequency of adjustments to give him the best chance at a happy and healthy back to school!”
