Then there are all those books, and sometimes more hours of computer use. Back packs are a great way to carry school materials, and even heavy packs should not be a problem – if carried properly. That means BOTH straps on the shoulders (and I mean one on each shoulder). A backpack or even a typical purse hung off ONE shoulder can be a very short route to pain!
Carried correctly, a healthy person (child or adult) should be able to carry up to 40% of their body weight in a well designed back-pack. Choose carefully and carry wisely!
