Spring fun used to involve little more than a ball, a bat and a sprinkler. Today, spring means everything from trampolines to skateboards, scooters and ATVs. All this gear might make summer more fun, but Dr. Smith warns that it also makes it more dangerous. This spring make sure you know how to keep your children safe with all outdoor fun.
The good news? Parents can help protect their children — and themselves — by learning about the dangers associated with outdoor recreational gear.
Dr. Smith believes that education is an integral part of the prevention equation because it enables patients to take a more active role in their health care. Preventing injury, illness and disease is the foundation of the chiropractic lifestyle.
Planning for a safe spring and summer is no accident! Our goal isn’t to put a wet blanket on your summer fun but to merely make you aware that danger is always just a bounce, fall or collision away.
