A healthy spine is an important part of growth and development.
As parents of 3 children, we have seen first hand how young bodies are constantly getting knocked and bumped as children explore the world and learn new skills. Young spines are constantly adapting to changes in size and stature. As children develop into teenagers, they are often required to carry heavy school bags and spend hours on a screen or studying with their spine flexed. Contact and repetitive sports also can add further stress to their growing bodies.
Conditions like scoliosis, growing pains, Osgood Schlatters and poor posture are common in children and teenagers.
Studies are now showing a healthy spine can also improve brain function.
