Carrying a schoolbag doesn’t have to be a pain:
- Ensure that bag weight is a maximum of 10 per cent of body weight.
- Reduce carrying time.
- Even out the load by packing heavy items at the bottom
- Don’t wear a schoolbag over one shoulder.
- Choose the right backpack.
If your child is having problem with their neck, shoulders or back from carrying a heavy schoolbag, physiotherapy can help. Call Manjimup Physiotherapy today on 9777 1048.
