Local Chiropractor Holds Bike Helmet Giveaway and Kids Fair in Recognition of Brain Injury Awareness Month

Chiropractic Care for Kids in Louisville KY

Louisville, KY - As an established chiropractor and owner of Lowe Chiropractic & Wellness in Louisville, Dr. Patrick Lowe, sees his share of neck and back pain and headaches and migraines resulting from head trauma. And while he is quick to assert that accidents do indeed happen, he is taking an active role in doing what he can to prevent the lasting effects of those by hosting a Kids Fair on March 14 where he will give away 500 bike helmets. The event is being held in recognition of Brain Injury Awareness Month, which takes place each March.

The Fair will include the helmet giveaway, face painting, bouncy houses, participation by the local fire department which will have their vehicles and equipment on hand, a gymnastics course and food. It runs from 8 a.m. to noon at 10306 Shelbyville Road, in Dorsey Plaza.

“The issue is personal for me as the father of four and as a doctor who has seen the life-changing effects of preventable injuries in far too many kids as well as adults. By providing helmets to families who may not be able to afford them and raising awareness, I believe this event can make a measurable impact in our community,” said Dr. Lowe, who has authored articles on the topic for professional publications.

“And while the end game is healthier kids, we are also looking at this as a great kick-off to spring and a fun way to get the community together,” he added.

Statistics clearly show that his efforts can indeed make a positive difference. As much as 88 percent of bike-related head trauma can be avoided by wearing a helmet. In fact, bike helmet use among children ages 4-15 is estimated to be able to prevent up to 45,000 head injuries – every year. Dr. Lowe says that with over 12 million children in the United States reported to be bike riders, there is significant opportunity for improved education on helmet usage to reduce the devasting effects of preventable injuries.

“As the temperatures in Louisville are inching up, kids are eagerly getting their bikes and skateboards out after a long winter. Before they hop back on, let’s get them equipped for the ride,” he added.

Lowe Chiropractic & Wellness helps patients struggling with neck or back pain, headaches or migraines, carpal tunnel, sciatica, and other health conditions. The practice’s Google reviews and website testimonials show a long list of satisfied patients of all ages.
