Make sure your child’s backpack weighs no more than 10 percent of his or her body weight. A heavier backpack will cause your child to bend forward to support the weight on the back rather than the shoulders.
The backpack should never hang more than four, inches below the waistline. A backpack that hangs too low increases the weight on the shoulders causing your child to lean forward when walking.
A backpack with individualized compartments helps in positioning the contents most effectively.
Make sure that pointy or bulky objects are packed away from the area that will rest on your child’s back.
Bigger is not necessarily better. The more room there is in a backpack, the more your child will carry, and the heavier the backpack will be.
Urge your child to wear both shoulder straps. Lugging the backpack around by one strap can cause the disproportionate shift of weight to one side leading to neck and muscle spasms as well as low-back pain.
Wide, padded straps are very important. Non-padded straps are uncomfortable and can dig into your child’s shoulders.
The shoulder straps should be adjustable so the backpack will fit to your child’s body. Straps that are too loose can cause the backpack to dangle causing spinal misalignment and pain.
If the backpack is still too heavy talk to your child's teacher. Ask if your child could leave the heaviest books at school and bring home only lighter hand-out materials or workbooks. Or encourage your local school district to purchase textbooks on CD – ROM.
Although the use of rollerpacks – or backpacks on wheels – has become popular in recent years, the ACA (American Chiropractic Association) is now recommending that they be used cautiously and on a limited basis by only those students who are not physically able to carry a backpack. Some school districts have begun banning the use of rollerpacks because they clutter hallways resulting in dangerous trips and falls.
Accidents and Injuries
In the course of life we all have some form of trauma to the spine. It begins with the birth process, and continues through adulthood with sports, auto accidents, and trips and falls. In a serious accident the communication lines between the brain and the rest of the body can be seriously interrupted by vertebral subluxations.
