It’s not long now before the start of the new school term and our chiropractors at the Family Chiropractic Clinic in Hounslow want to remind parents of the importance of keeping your child’s back safe.
Our chiropractors are treating younger and younger people these days, mainly due to the increasingly sedentary lifestyles people are living. Poor posture is often the result of this type of lifestyle, along with an increase in usage of computers and mobile devices (and of course watching TV!).
Improving posture can be a relatively simple thing to do. The British Chiropractic Association has developed a simple 3 minute programme called Straighten Up UK which is specifically designed to improve posture. The idea is to make these simple set of exercises part of your daily routine, like brushing your teeth is.
We have included a video of the programme below and we would encourage you and your children to try it out. It’s fun, simple and quick to do. So give it a go.
Our chiropractors in Hounslow wish your children all the very best for their new school term.
