“As adults, we get used to a variety of daily or near-daily aches and pains, particularly as we age. But what about our children? Don’t they seem immune to many, if not all, of the pain complaints we have – despite the fact that for the most part, they’re exponentially more active?
Maybe not. A study of schoolchildren ages 12-15 revealed a startling statistic: More than half (57 percent) reported experiencing back pain in the past year. As you might expect, “remaining seated at school” was a primary pain trigger, particularly for back pain lasting up to seven days.”
My 4 sons have had chiropractic care since they were born. All have participated in sports in organized teams, hiking, rowing, and running. They have also sat through many hours of school and found it harder to sit for hours than get up and move or exercise. Chiropractic care combined with posture exercises have helped them maintain their active lifestyle and….avoid back pain from long periods of sitting. NIH study
