60% of Our Kids are Being Injured
Local doctor is offering a solution to parents to correct this problem
Henderson, NV; September 30, 2013 – Parents are often alarmed to learn that 60% of school
aged children will have some kind of backpack related pain. A backpack should weight no
more than 10% of a child's body weight, but backpacks can weigh up to 30% of a child's
weight. Having a backpack that fits properly, with the weight distributed properly will help
lessen back pain related to their backpacks.
Dr. Alexis Noggle, DC of The Joint Corp., a leading franchisor of chiropractic clinics, is providing
parents a solution to help protect their kids. The Joint – Henderson Sunset is a part of one of the
largest chiropractic wellness practices in the nation.

A fellow mom needs our support! Aspen Marthaler of Phoenix, AZ is a beautiful mom of two, ages 1 and 4, whose breast cancer returned after being in remission and having a full mastectomy. Doctors told her the reason for its return was linked to her decision to have her second baby...she is fighting for her life and treatment is expensive. Local friends in Las Vegas have been gathering donating items to sell from the community this month, a response they say has become almost overwhelming yet truly a sign of God's hand at work! People and businesses have donated the office space to hold it, furniture, brand new clothing, childrens items, household items, linens, baked goods and much more for this widespread event to raise money and pay for her treatments, blessing the Marthaler family!!
