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.

Parents are encouraged to bring their kids with their school backpbacks to Dr. Noggle and The

Joint on 5 October, 2013 for a FREE Backpack Safety Assessment. No appointment is necessary

and Dr. Noggle is seeing families from 10 AM to 4 PM.

“Our experience has shown that over 55% of kids are carrying a backpack that is too heavy for

them,” states Dr. Noggle. “Parents want to protect their kids from injury but often don't have

the data to understand what is right for their child.”

Each child will receive a postural analysis by Dr. Alexis Noggle at The Joint and the parent will

receive recommendations to protect their child from further injury do to their school backpacks.

“Henderson and the Las Vegas area have been so good to our clinic.” Dr. Noggle continues, “This

is just my way of giving back to the community.”
