When Mrs. Norma walks through the office doors, she brings such a burst of joy and energy to the office. She has been a patient for many years and has seen such a huge change in her spinal health. She used to suffer from chronic neck and lower back pain and tried every method possible to relieve pain. But it wasn’t until she started coming to Family First that she saw a difference and is for the most part pain free! We love success stories!
Last month Mandolin’s sister, Mollie, was our chirokid of the month. Mandolin saw the drastic improvements her sister was having by getting adjustments and she wanted the same for herself while she was here for the summer. She is getting checked weekly for wellness and proper development as her body grows! We love having this family in the office and so happy they’re here for the summer. We are glad we could get them feeling better while they are in town.
Back pain is pervasive among American adults, however it is not uncommon among children and teens either. In a new and disturbing trend, young children are suffering from back pain much earlier than previous generations, and the use of overweight backpacks is a contributing factor, according to the American Chiropractic Association (ACA). In fact, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission has previously reported that backpack-related injuries sent more than 7,000 people to the emergency room in one year’s time.
What Can You Do To Help Prevent This?
ACA offers the following tips to help prevent the needless pain that backpack misuse could cause the students in your household.
Grandma Bonnie (who has been a regular wellness patient here for over a year) brought her grand daughter Molli to us (who is visiting for the summer). Molli was suffering from projectile vomiting, constipation and multiple digestive issues when she was brought into the office. Her grandmother’s goal was to get her off of medications and her back to functioning like a normal kid. Since beginning care Molli has not vomited once, is now going to the bathroom regularly and is almost off of all her prescription medications. She is well on her way to functioning at 100% and is enjoying her summer at the beach!

We are so glad that Kyra is a patient at our office. As a growing teen, her body is making many changes from growth spurts to mental developments and her adjustments are very important to her body. We are thankful that her parents are also patients and see the value in getting their daughter adjusted regularly.
