It’s Fall!

It’s that time of the year again where we put our summer gear away and prepare for fall. Fall also means our children are back in school! It’s important to remember to bring your child(ren) in for regular chiropractic adjustments. Chiropractic adjustments are safe for children of any ages. *Regular adjustments may improves: sleep, behavior, attitude and immune system function and also keeps our children focused. Not only are routinely adjustments important for mental health and concentration during the school year but they are also beneficial for our young athletes who participate in any type of sports. Food: watch for what your children are eating at school. Research the school menu to make sure your child is getting the full nutrition they need. If not, pack them yummy healthy snacks and lunches! Backpacks: two strap backpacks are better than one strap. Book bags can get heavy, and even though sagging backpacks are often a fad, it is important to make sure your child keeps them higher up and on both shoulders to keep the back supported. One strap backpacks put stress on that particular shoulder and the back and can cause misalignment. Check with your child’s school to see if a second set of books can be provided. It is better to leave one set at school and one set at home, rather than carry them back and forth. Also, look into a rolling backpack for less stress on the body and limit a carried backpack to 10 lbs.

Fun Issaquah Family Chiropractic Facts:
The youngest baby we have seen this year was only 9 days old! Dr. Babcox was able to help him latch on, digest food better and sleep better. He was also spitting up less after his treatment plan was over.
