"Australian children may be at risk of permanent spinal damage because of incorrectly packed and fitted school backpacks. The Chiropractors’ Association of Australia’s (CAA) recent in-field observation study revealed 90% of school children have bad posture when carrying their bag. Adult back pain and spinal disorders may stem from childhood activities including carrying a heavily loaded backpack for twelve years or more of schooling. We have your back with these handy backpack tips:
1 Backpacks should be ideally no heavier than 10% of a student's weight when packed.
2 Make sure the backpack is sturdy and appropriately sized - no wider than the student's chest
3 Put comfort and fit at the top of the priority list, rather than good looks
4 Choose a backpack with broad, padded shoulder straps
5 Use both shoulder straps - never sling the pack over one shoulder
6 Use waist straps attached - they are there for a good reason
7 Don't wear the backpack any lower than the hollow of the lower back
8 Don't overload the backpack - use school lockers and plan homework well in advance
9 Place all heavy items at the base of the pack, close to the spine, for a better distribution of the weight."
