Hello! We hope that everyone is enjoying their days as we dive into Summer Time. The sun is out and everyone is ready to grill, swim, and enjoy family time. We are excited to see many of our patients enjoy the outdoors again. Our goal is always to enable people to enjoy their lives through our chiropractor Tulsa Ok treatments.
Today we want to talk about what causes pain among children. As many of you know, pain is not just reserved for adults. It’s true that children do bounce back quicker than adults, but that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t be thinking about it. The goal for children is to always catch things early on as to avoid greater issues in later years.
Here are just a few things we want parents to keep an eye on with their children.
At a certain age, children want to do everything! Whether it’s playing sports at school or simply going outdoors, children have a passion for adventure. But those hobbies can lead to injury and if they go unchecked can turn into a problem. We encourage all parents to keep an eye on children especially those involved in sports. Sports that involve a lot of physical contact, like football, need to be watched closely. If a child is complaining or is experiencing ongoing discomfort, we want to check them out. It could be nothing or it could be something. Either way, it’s always better safe than sorry.
