Backpacks Without Back Pain

      Tips to help your family


* Make sure your child’s backpack weights no more than

  5 to 10 percent of their body weight.

*Your child’s backpack should never hand more than four

  inches below the waistline.

*Purchase backpacks with individualized compartments-

  this helps to position the contents more effectively.

*Urge your child to wear both shoulder straps

*Purchase backpacks with wide, padded straps

*Purchase backpacks with adjustable straps so the backpack

  can be fitted to your child’s body

*If the backpack is still too heavy, talk to your child’s teacher.

  Ask if your child could leave the heaviest books at school.
