McKINNEY — HealthSource Chiropractic Progressive Rehab® and Wellness has launched a new program aimed at providing funding for local schools, while helping relieve pain-related issues for students and other people.
The program will provide free community health screenings in exchange for $10 donations to the McKinney Independent School District. The health screenings (a $189 value) will help track down even small amounts of pain, and issues related to lower back, neck, shoulder or arm pain, headaches, bulging or herniated discs, leg pain, numbness and more. X-rays will be included if necessary.
The $10 donations will be accepted at the HealthSource office, 6200 W. Eldorado Pkwy., Ste. 200, until Sept. 30. People interested in the screenings are encouraged to call and set up an appointment.
More than 3,000 children each year require emergency room visits for backpack-related injuries, according to statistics cited by HealthSource. Thousands of additional students are treated for headaches, neck pain and shoulder problems related to improper backpack use.
Improper backpack use also can lead to poor posture and scoliosis. Girls and younger children may be at greater risk for backpack-related injuries because they are smaller and may carry loads that are heavier in proportion to their body weight. Backpacks with tight, narrow straps that dig into the shoulders also can interfere with circulation and nerves. These types of straps can contribute to tingling, numbness and weakness in arms and hands.
