Your child shouldn’t have the weight of the world on their shoulders.
Here are some tips for selecting and wearing a kid’s backpack to prevent injury.
“Did you remember your math book? And your science book? What about your literature book? Your notebook? What about your pencils?”
If you’re a parent, these questions probably feature prominently in your morning routine before your child leaves for school.
All of those books and school supplies might be necessary for them to get through their day, but have you ever stopped to think about what all that weight could be doing to your child’s back? If your child has been complaining about neck, shoulder, or back pain, their backpack could be the culprit.
