Chiropractors have know for years that sleeping on your back or side is best for your health.Now research in the Journal of Neuroscience has shown that your sleeping position doesn’t just impact how comfortable your rest is, it can also have impacts on your health. And this goes beyond just heartburn and snoring – it could help you avoid neurological diseases, like Alzheimer’s disease or Parkinson’s disease. According to the research, sleeping on your side, as opposed to sleeping on your back or stomach, may be a better position for your brain to clear out its waste while you sleep.

According to the American Chiropractic Association, backpacks are the leading cause of pain among children and adolescents.
But some local doctors are reaching out to help ease the ache.
The Doctors at Milton Chiropractic say a few simple adjustments can save your child from pain:
- Place heavy items on the bottom, close to child's back
- Padded straps are best
- Wear both shoulder straps at all times. Use the waist or chest strap if it has one. It helps to distribute the load.
- Carry only essentials
- Not all backpacks are the same size. Make sure it fits the size of your child correctly. The "pack" should not be larger than the area between the base of their neck and the top of their waist.
And MIlton Chiropractic has one final tip. "You're seeing the kids and they're literally hunched over, so one of the thing that researchers have suggested is that children's backpacks should not exceed over 15% of their overall body weight."

Chiropractic works - and so can you! A study in the April 2011 issue of the Journal of Occupational and Environmental Medicine suggests that when it comes to work-related low back pain, the risk of disability recurrence is lower for people treated only by a chiropractor than patients treated only by a medical doctor.
