BELLA VISTA, Ark. (KNWA) — A Bella Vista chiropractor says some kids may be experiencing anxiety, both mentally and physically, from the stump dump fire.
Dr. Taylor Stevens from Tribe Family Chiropractic says kids, especially with sensory issues, may feel anxious not knowing when the fire will be put out or not being able to play outside.
He says there are ways to cope by winding down the nervous system.
“Another thing is a reassurance. Reassuring the kiddo that everything is going to be okay. Reassuring, ‘hey you have this anxiety now, but before you were okay, and so it’s going to be okay in the long run,'” Stevens said.
Stevens says breathing techniques can also help kids cope with anxiety.
On Thursday, February 21, Tribe Family Chiropractic will host a talk about anxiety, ADHD, sensory issues, autism and the things that build up to that.
That’s at 6 p.m. at their office.
