    Sadly my chiropractic clinic treats many children with back aches and discomforts from carrying heavy backpacks. Slumped posture and unilateral shifts in shoulder and neck posture are often the result of children carrying heavy backpacks on one shoulder. Encouraging children to carry backpacks using both straps to even the load can help improve children’s posture and development. However, the root cause is backpacks that are too heavy for small children’s developing bodies and neurological systems.
