Our Children Have Spines, Also.
We sometimes forget that our children have spines also that are neglected, overworked, abused, and repetitively strained.
As school begins, or began already, I implore you all to bring in your children for a complimentary spinal exam. It is easy to forget that there spines are overloaded. The amount of problems I have seen in the past 10 years due to "the book bags from hell"is astounding. Fortunately, some schools have gotten double books so kids don't have to constantly bring home their books. Still, it is a problem. It affects the posture and therefore function of mechanics of the vertebrae which can lead to further problems as our children get older.
Please bring them in, my pleasure to check them. I implore all my patients that are parents to check their kids book bags and make sure they are not bringing home more then they need. Easy to do and important to follow up with.
See you soon in the office.
Yours in good health,
Dr. Ray and Staff
