Well I’ve just returned from Acton school junior department where I’ve been teaching the children all about how to keep their spines healthy using Straighten Up UK www.chiropractic-uk.co.uk/straightenup/
Straighten Up UK is a programme of exercises for the whole family and only takes 5 minutes everyday to complete to keep the spine healthy and happy. The children were great! They knew a lot already about how to keep their bodies healthy with diet and movement, and they were superb at the exercises (even better than me at the core balance…but shh don’t tell) .
Problems with the spine can occur at any age and we are seeing younger patients at our clinic in the last few years due to our love of sedentary lifestyles. Too long on computer games, less time playing outdoors as well as much more homework than we used to have and more equipment to carry to school. This causes stress on the spine and with exam season just around the corner we need to keep our children’s spines happy and pain free. If your child is suffering give the clinic a call on 01978 264 531 to see if we can help.
Just before I go thank you so much to Acton School for letting us come and talk to the children about keeping your spine happy, all the staff and pupils were great-keep up the good work Acton School!
