Teachers are the key to every child’s future endeavors whether you want to believe it or not. Teachers at every level of school have to do many different things. First and foremost, they educate students. However, they also counsel students, speak to the public (mostly parents-some of whom can be annoying), some coach, and just as important - babysit your child so they make it back home safely. All of this may seem easy to the non-teacher, but all of these situations put a lot of mental and emotional stress on a teacher.
Then there are the physical stresses of teaching that many people forget about. When students do homework...who grades it? The teachers. This leads to hours of hunching over a desk to correct homework every year, not to mention, the amount of time they spend sitting at a desk creating lesson plans. Other teachers stand for long periods of time creating extra stress on the body.
We at Cornerstone Chiropractic of Hortonville can help teachers function at their best through the use of adjustments. Stress has been proven to be a precipitating factor in disease and illness. When the spine is aligned, the nervous system functions at its best allowing teachers to deal with these daily stresses without it taking a toll on their bodies and psyche. This means that teachers could have less headaches, shoulder tightness, low back or hip pain, and sick days - just to name a few. So teachers...don’t forget to treat and take care of yourselves because the community you work in needs you at your best. Have a great school year from everybody at Cornerstone Chiropractic of Hortonville.
