It is officially August, and that means it is time to head back to school. Excitement is in the air as students and teachers start off a new school year. Your to-do list includes getting new school supplies, new shoes, and a fall wardrobe, but it’s also important to take notice of your health. A great addition to your back to school routine is to take care of your back with chiropractic care. Here’s why:

Backpacks are Heavy

You might not realize just how much stress a heavy backpack puts on the back. Especially if they are thrown over one shoulder, backpacks can cause misalignments of the spine and excess stress on the neck, shoulders, and back. Chiropractic care can help alleviate that stress and maintain proper alignment to keep discomfort away. Along with regular adjustments, keep backpacks as light as possible and wear them properly with both straps.

Better Health Means More Energy

After a fun and care-free summer, back to school can seem exhausting. Whether you’re a student, parent, or teacher, this time of year can really take it out of you! Chiropractic can help boost your energy and ensure that your energy is being used where it should. When your spine is properly aligned, your central nervous system is able to work as efficiently as possible. Therefore, your body uses energy efficiently, too. Will you still be tired? Sure. But with the right amount of rest and regular chiropractic adjustments, your body will be more comfortable and functioning as it should and will certainly help you ease into going back to school.

Stress Relief is a Good Thing

As exciting as going back to school is, it is also stressful. For teenagers and college aged students, stress is obvious. Tight schedules and piles of assignments make for a stressful day! But even younger children are susceptible to school-induced stress. Chiropractic can help relieve stress as it keeps the body in a relaxed state. When your body is calm, it is easier for the mind to be calm and many of our patients report stress relief as just another benefit of regular chiropractic care.
