Dr. Janna-Marie Doni Visits St. Mary Catholic School

Dr. Janna-Marie Doni from the Capreol Chiropractic Clinic visited the students at St. Mary Catholic School to share important information re how correct body posture can reduce back pain and the proper method of packing and carrying backpacks.

October 24, 2007 - Dr. Janna-Marie Doni, a Chiropractor at the Capreol Chiropractic Clinic, recently visited St. Mary Catholic School to speak to the students on a variety of health issues. Dr. Doni’s presentation to the class focussed on how the body works and how the brain sends messages down the spinal cord and out through the nerves to all parts of the body.

Students actively participated in the presentation, answering questions and performing exercises to improve body posture. The students learned three ways in which to keep a spine healthy: good posture, carry a backpack properly (pack it light, wear it right), and regular chiropractic care.

Primary students were also provided with a colouring page highlighting the “do’s and don’ts” of carrying backpacks. Older students were given a sheet entitled "Lighten Your Load,” re-enforcing the fact that the weight of a backpack should be a maximum of 10 percent of a person’s body weight for students in Kindergarten to Grade 8.

Dr. Janna's final thoughts for the students were: "I wish you a lifetime of happiness and great health." For more information on these and other topics please visit
