October is National Chiropractic Health Month

According to the American Chiropractic Association, “National Chiropractic Health Month (NCHM) is a nationwide campaign held each October. This year’s activities will focus on how chiropractic care can help prevent and treat the repetitive stress injuries associated with the improper use of handheld technology. This year’s NCHM toolkit will enable DCs to reach out to their patients and communities and help to raise awareness about a techno healthy lifestyle.” The ACA is promoting healthy living and daily activity by asking that we all keep moving, “National Chiropractic Health Month (NCHM) kicks off in October 2016 with the theme of “Find Your Game!”

“Find Your Game” means achieving optimal function at any level of fitness. That includes everyone from athletes to office workers, young and old. ACA encourages everyone to use the month of October to resolve to be your best, feel your best, and perform your best. If you are a patient or member of the public, please visit our public website www.chirohealthy.com, which features tips and information to keep you healthy and pain free!”


Back to School

A good quality backpack with proper ergonomic features doesn’t have to be expensive.  Backpacks can be found at many sporting goods stores, large retailers and discount outlets.  Experts offer the following recommendations when shopping for a backpack:

First, get the appropriate size and fit.  The right backpack should fit between the top of your child’s shoulders and lower back. Bigger is not better, since having more space available creates the potential for a heavier backpack.

Find one with shoulder straps that are wide, padded and adjustable.  These distribute the weight more broadly across the shoulders and chest while allowing the backpack to be fitted snuggly to your child’s body.

For older students, consider a backpack with chest straps and a hip belt.  Chest straps and a hip belt redistribute weight even further and bring the pack closer to the wearer’s body.

Look for a padded back that will add comfort and protection, as well as a backpack with multiple smaller compartments. – These help distribute the weight inside the bag and keep it stable.

Once your child has the right bag, it is just as important to encourage him/her to wear it correctly.  Chiropractors and physical therapists generally agree that means wearing it on both shoulder straps – and with the straps tightened. This is so that it hangs no more than four inches below the waist.

A Note from Dr. Moskowitz: Backpack and Chiropractic

Using a backpack should not cause any pain or discomfort under normal circumstances.  If your child is showing signs of back, neck or shoulder pain, we encourage you to call our office today.  In addition to addressing any current problems that your child may be experiencing, Dr. Moskowitz can recommend an exercise program designed to strengthen muscles, and improve posture and coordination.  He can also offer instruction about good nutrition and sleep habits that will support your child’s healthy development. This will help them prepare for the school year ahead – this year and every year!

Testimonials

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "I have had the pleasure of seeing Dr. Mike for about 5 years now when I come to Bethesda. I have used many other chiropractors and he is the best ever! I always tell him he is the Michael Jordan of Chiropractic. He is a very friendly and honest guy. I would recommend him to anyone of all ages. He is by far the best in the area. Oh and the staff in the front is very friendly!"

  • "Outstanding in his profession, great personality and Dr. Moskowitz has helped me immensely. When I began treatments with him, I was about two weeks from having back surgery. Cancelled the surgery and relied upon Dr. Moskowitz. Best decision I have made was to rely on him to solve my back problems. Highly recommend!!"
