“Each school year millions of school children walk to and from school incorrectly carrying backpacks containing a heavy load. This can often end in discomfort to the neck and spine. Let’s teach our children to carry their bag in a spine safe way”.
Each year in late January, millions of kids across Australian return to classrooms full of learning, play and socialising. While schools are great places for children to learn and develop both mentally and socially, it’s important for kids to remember their health and wellbeing in the classroom, all year round.
While most parents and children have a checklist of stationery and supplies for starting the school year, together with the Australian Chiropractors Association we are providing parents and children with a ‘Back to School Health Checklist.’ The checklist, is a great way to remind kids of the importance of building healthy habits in school, are simple to incorporate and easily fit into a child’s everyday routine.
For more information on being ‘back to school ready’ or if you would like to have one of our Chiropractor’s to access your child’s backpack and or posture, please feel free to contact us.
