Backpacks Without Back Pain

Each school year our children walk to, from, and around school carrying backpacks. This allows a child to carry a number of schoolbooks and items in a practical way, distributing the heavy load across the strong back and shoulder muscles. The risk, however, is overload, which can strain the back, neck and shoulders. Following a few guidelines and using common sense can help avoid such things from happening.
