Are Headaches Affecting Your Child’s Academic Performance?

Has your child ever complained of a nagging headache?  If so, he or she isn’t alone.  Research shows that headaches are as much of a problem for children as adults — not only because of the pain, but also because of the effect on a child’s quality of life.

  • Headaches lead to missing school
  • Hurts social interaction
  • Linked with depression
  • Skipped sleep
  • Headache sufferers do worse in school

Of course, your youngster can’t opt out of school to avoid headaches; so this school year, vow to eradicate headaches before classes start.  Rather than masking symptoms with over-the-counter (OTC) drugs, which are loaded with potential side effects, choose chiropractic care — a proven all-natural solution for pediatric headaches.

Doctors of chiropractic focus on prevention.  First, they gently and carefully examine a child’s spine for vertebral subluxations.  Then use highly specialized and gentle maneuvers called chiropractic adjustments tailored to match a child’s body size and spine.

Take a proactive approach and schedule an appointment today, before school begins.
