Neck pain and some types of headaches are treated through precise cervical manipulation. Cervical manipulation, often called a neck adjustment, works to improve joint mobility in the neck, restoring range of motion and reducing muscle spasm and nerve irritation which helps relieve pressure and tension while eliminating pain and headaches.#chiropractor #chiropracticcare #neckpain #painrelief

Dr. Lucien Eid: Your child is back to school? Here are the main contributing factors of back pain in children and teens.
It’s back to school season, after a fun and stress free summer and relaxed back and shoulders, children will have to deal with school stress, backpack weight, afternoon study time and for some of them regular sports or activities training. Children rarely suffer from back pain, hence any complaint by a child about acute back pain should be taken very seriously. Why are children subjected to back pain? Some of the potentiel causes of back pain could be due to a structural spinal problem like Scheuermann's Kyphosis, which is an excessive curvature of upper and mid back caused by wedged vertebrae, or Scoliosis, a deviation of the spine causing unleveled pelvis or shoulder. Most spinal injuries in children are soft tissue injuries, meaning that they are injury to muscles, tendons and ligaments. These injuries are often caused by overuse or strain. Some potentiel causes can be due to: Carrying heavy back packs, children these days carry back packs that could be up to 40% of their weight which causes severe strain of the back and shoulder muscles. Furthermore carrying back packs on one side can cause uneven load on their spine. Poor posture, prolonged sitting in school, looking down at the book or electronic device. This may result in tightening of muscles in the neck and upper back region which promotes straightening of the normal C shape curvature and cause chronic pain. Our body is made to move, lack of exercises and a sedentary lifestyle promotes muscles weakness so they won't be able to support the spine properly which results in frequent injuries. However, excessive year round exercises and sports may fatigue the body and causes overuse injuries to their back and extremity joints like knees and shoulders. How should we avoid back pain in children? Keep in mind that the active body needs to rest to recuperate so it’s very important to avoid painful activities and to minimize activity to speed up healing times for back pain. Choosing the right backpack is crucial not to mention that backpack pain shouldn’t exceed 10-15% of your child’s weight. Also usage of a book stand to avoid excessive bending of the neck and back while reading may be helpful to avoid slouching. Finally don’t ignore any complaint from your child about acute back pain or chronic back pain, consult his pediatrician or get your child's back checked yearly by a chiropractor to rule out any major problem that could get worse if left undetected like scheuermann's and scoliosis. Do you have any tips on choosing children’s backpacks? Certainly, choosing the right backpack can prevent back, neck and shoulder pains, so it’s important to keep in mind the following criteria: The right size: too big or too small can cause muscle strains or excess shoulder pressure, also make sure that the bottom of the backpack is resting in the curve of the lower back. Padded shoulder with two straps: avoid backpacks with one straps, it can cause kids to lean to one side. Furthermore well padded shoulder straps reduces pressure on their shoulders and necks. Backpacks with waist belts can help distribute the weight of a full loaded backpack thus lessen the pain. What is the importance of physical activity for school children? And how does it prevent back pain? Regular physical activity can help children improve cardiorespiratory fitness, control weight, and reduce the risk of developing serious health conditions (diabetes, obesity…). More importantly physical activity during adolescence builds strong bones and muscles and improves endurance, not to mention the development of low back musculature structures, which may facilitate low back function. What are the tips that you can give children to help them prevent back pain? Carry your back pack using both shoulder straps and not to carry it on one side Keep the back pack as light as possible Proper sitting and take a 5 minute break to stretch and walk around for every hour of sitting. Stay active, practice a sports you like 2 to 3 times per week. Make sure you get a minimum of 8 hours of sleep per day. Learning is a gift, so CHIN up, STRAIGHTEN you back and Enjoy school!

School can be a pain… but it doesn’t have to be! The American Chiropractic Association reports that children are suffering from back pain much earlier in life than previous generations. Here are some tips for choosing the right backpack for your child: - STRAPS: Select a backpack with well-padded shoulder straps to help protect the shoulders and neck. These straps should be adjusted so the pack fits snugly against your child’s back. A pack hanging loosely from the back can pull a child backward and strain muscles. - SIZE: Select a smaller backpack for your younger child. The backpack itself should be lightweight (it should not exceed 10-15% of you child's weight) - BELT: Consider a pack with a waist belt to help distribute the weight of the pack evenly. - WHEELS: Consider buying a pack on wheels, similar to the carry-on luggage used by airplane travellers. #backtoschool #backpack #backpain #chiropracticcare #chiropractor #backtowellness
