Tanya’s Tip of the Week: Backpacks Matter

Do you remember hunching over with a backpack full of heavy textbooks and school supplies? Even with today’s technology, most schools still use the typical school books which, let’s face it… may as well come with a disclaimer of potential back issues.

Remember that choosing the right backpack can help the young ones exponentially when it comes to avoiding current and future back issues. 

Some of many options are to try to opt for backpacks that have positive reviews about comfort, use rolling backpacks if possible, make sure the shoulder straps are snug and adjusted regularly as the thickness of clothing can change the comfort level, avoid unnecessary weight and try to keep the weight evenly distributed.
