Back-to-school backpack check

Every January millions of children, including some of our very own patients, go back to school. With kids spending nearly 200 days at school each year, the doctors at Essential Chiropractic and Healthcare Clinic would like to remind patients to encourage their children to be mindful of their health when in school, especially their spine. Watch the Australian Chiropractic Association’s video to find the back-to-school backpack check.

The Australian Chiropractors Association have developed a Back to School Health Checklist to remind children and their parents of the healthy habits that they should be practising all year round. 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.

If you’re concerned about your child’s spine, book a free postural assessment and backpack check with one of our chiropractors by calling our friendly team at 03 9470 3443. Limited appointments available for a limited time only!
