Ending Summer With a Splash in Dubuque

Ending Summer With a Splash in Dubuque

Getting back to school in Dubuque can be hard and exciting at the same time! Let us help deter future physical ailments due to the weight of your child’s backpack! If you have kids heading back to school and nothing to do this coming Tuesday at 10:00 a.m. - join us at our backpack workshop, Pack for Your Back. There, we plan to educate parents and their children on the possible harms of heavy, poorly-loaded backpacks by giving them tips on how to keep backpacks safe!

How To Prevent Pain and Discomfort in Dubuque

In 2001, there were over 7,000 hospital visits involving backpack-related injuries. How can you prevent a trip to the hospital with your child? Look out for signs in your child, such as not adapting efficiently, obvious digestive issues, lack of energy, and inability to focus.

Believe it or not, if your child is experiencing any of those symptoms, the damage may have been done by their backpack. Come to our workshop to learn the possible risks that come with sad backpacks as well as how to fix them. Just bring one thing - the backpack!

Stay Informed

As adults and parents, it is important that we stay educated on all the possible harms our child may face. Anytime we observe a sign that our body is not working properly, we need to see a chiropractor immediately to maintain optimal health. We hope to see you at our Pack for Your Back workshop to increase your knowledge of risks you never knew existed.

Back to School Events

Family First Chiropractic Wellness Center is gearing up for an upcoming Foundations class as well as many other events! For the entire month of August, we are committed to helping our community prepare for the school year ahead.

In addition to participating in a fundraiser to help supply school supplies to local children in need, we are also doing a backpack fitting workshop on Tuesday, August 11th at 10:00 a.m. There, we will evaluate the type of backpack your child plans to wear to school each day and help them come up with effective strategies to reduce physical stress from the excess weight.

Family First Chiropractic Wellness Center has an upcoming event meant to celebrate all of you! We wanted to take this end-of-summer opportunity to have a patient appreciation gathering. Surprise! Dr. Jenny Leist took the time to create invitations for you all - be sure to grab one at your next visit!
