Dr. Shaun Hudson of Bone and Joint Wellness Center in Scottsdale was on Sonoran Living (ABC 15) today and demonstrated the proper use and fit for kid’s backpacks.
Although back pain is relatively common among American adults, children are beginning exhibit symptoms such as back and neck pain much earlier in life than previous generations. The use of overweight and improperly fitted backpacks appears to be a contributing factor.
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission reports that backpack-related injuries were responsible for more than 7,000 emergency room visits in 2001 alone.
