Top Five Recommendations for Parents


How much does your child’s backpack weigh when they head off to school in the morning? Do you know? It’s okay if you don’t. The truth is that most parents don’t know but you need to. A backpack weighing more than 15% of your child’s bodyweight can damage their developing spine.

Check the backpack straps for proper shoulder placement, making sure that the bottom of the backpack is two inches above the waist nd resting in the curve of the lower back.


3.

Continue weekly reminders that wearing the backpack on both shoulders prevents postural problems.


2.

Weigh your child’s backpack once a week to determine if it is within he safe range of 15% or less of your child’s body weight.

If your child is not under regular wellness chiropractic care, check our child’s shoulder and head level at least once a month to determine if they are showing early signs of repetitive stress on their growing spine. A Family Wellness Chiropractor who is trained to detect the early signs can perform this exam. Like dentistry, early detection and correction is key to better health.
