Our Back to School Checklist

Every January millions of children, including some of our very own patients, go back to school. While schools are great places for children to learn and develop both mentally and socially, it is 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, we are providing our patients with a ‘Back to School Health Checklist.’ The checklist, developed as part of the Australian Chiropractors Association (ACA) Back to School Campaign, is a great way to remind kids of the importance of building healthy habits in school.

They are simple to incorporate and easily fit into a child’s everyday routine. For instance, packing a healthy lunch filled with lots of fruit and veggies, getting 60 minutes of daily physical activity and wearing the backpack correctly by carrying it with both straps.

The Health Checklist also reminds kids to reduce their recreational screen time, sit correctly in the classroom and consider chiropractic care.

Kids don’t often think about the impact that common activities like sitting in a classroom, carrying a heavy bag and excessive screen time can have on their overall health and wellbeing.

Pick up your complimentary Back to School Health Checklist from us today, or if you are concerned about your child’s spine or any other back to school related activities, book an appointment with us via our online booking or call our reception on 6622 0218.

Check out our Facebook or Instagram for more about how you can help your children prepare for school.

Are Your Kids Practising These Healthy Habits In School?

 

 

Every January, thousands of Australian children return to school where they will be immersed in an environment of learning, playing and socialising. It’s important that their environment supports their health and wellbeing so they can continue to focus on what’s important. Being kids!

Spending hours in the classroom every day, children don’t often think about the impact this has on their spinal health and overall wellbeing. This Back to School season the Australian Chiropractors Association is encouraging children and their families to build positive health habits.

‘Back to School’ is a health initiative by the Australian Chiropractors Association (ACA) that aims to raise awareness on the importance of spinal health in children as they grow and develop.
