This is a great article on childhood obesity and deals with first steps to take care of the problem. As a Fort Worth chiropractor, I have seen this situation first hand in my office. Great Advice!
The highly emotive issue of childhood obesity will be the topic of a seminar spearheaded by the Child Care Links program of Burnside City Council on March 14.
“What we need to realize is that our kids are not just overweight, they are unhealthy. They are not eating as well as they should, they are not exercising as they should and they are more stressed than is right for kids of that age. What we need to focus on is not just getting them skinny, we need to focus on getting them healthy, and if we can do that, then their bodies will naturally find a healthy weight” says Dr Hill.

Child Care Links is an Early Childhood – Invest to Grow initiative, funded by the Australian Government under the Stronger Families and Communities Strategy.
Chiropractors usually work in their own private practice or in clinics with other healthcare professionals. They may also act as allied health consultants in areas including occupational health and safety, sport, rehabilitation, health insurance assessment and medico-legal advising.
Their tenet is that “Wellness is a lifelong process of assuming personal responsibility that empowers the individual to exercise choice, make informed decisions and take action towards a more balanced, dynamically sustainable and fulfilling existence in all dimensions of life.”
