Worried About Your Kid's Backpack?
The Scoop on School Backpacks and Tips to Keep Your Kids Safe

It's that time again... school will be starting soon and children will use backpacks to carry books and supplies back and forth from school and between classes. Parents often question whether the weight, or use of backpacks in general, may be contributing to back pain or postural changes in our children's spines.

In our most recent blog post, physical therapists Karolee Staudahar and Toula McCarty talk about the potential pitfalls of school backpacks and provide tips for how to protect your child.
