Is Your Child’s Backpack Leading to Problems in Coeur d'Alene ID?

Backpacks in Coeur d'Alene ID are a popular way for our children to carry their books and supplies to school, but if worn incorrectly it can lead to neck and back strain as well as postural problems because of the strain on muscles and joints.

Have your child CHOOSE a backpack with:

  • Wide, padded shoulder straps
  • Two shoulder straps (and wear both of them)
  • Padded back
  • Waist strap when possible (I know it isn’t cool)
  • Lightweight material
  • Alternative is a rolling backpack

TO PREVENT INJURY in Coeur d'Alene ID:

  • Keep the pack light- only 10-15% of the child’s body weight- If they weigh 60 pounds -pack should weight loaded only 6-9 pounds.
  • Lift properly
  • Tighten the straps
  • Build muscle strength

Do not ignore any back pain in a child or teenager, have them evaluated by a chiropractor to prevent further pain and problems.

Have a great and healthy school year!
