Check Your Child for Spinal Problems
Check your child's spine at home using three easy tests. Shoulder Check: Have child stand straight. One shoulder higher than the other is an indication of problems.

Bending Check: Have child bend straight forward from the waist, head level with the bakc and arms hanging relaxed to the floor. Check on either side fot he spine to see if the muscles "bunch" up (one sign of scoliosis).

Shoe Check: If one shoe wears out much before the other, especially if the wear is centered on the edge, a spinal problem could exist.

If any of these indicators are present, call us to have your child checked. First visit is only $39 through August 15!
