The American Chiropractic Association and TMC Chiropractic in Williston offer the following tips to prevent the needless back pain an overstuffed backpack could cause the student in your household:
Make sure the backpack weighs no more than 10 percent of your child’s body weight. This means a 100-pound child should carry no more than 10 pounds on his or her back.
A backpack with individualized compartments will help you position the contents most effectively and ensure that your child’s sandwich isn’t flattened by a heavy textbook.
