A Healthy Backpack

image of kids wearing backpacks.

Another important wellness essential product is an ergonomically designed backpack. It is amazing how we can put thousands of pages of data onto a microchip smaller than the eye can see, yet kids are carrying backpacks that are heavier than ever filled with text books. Many schools are taking away kid's lockers making the problem even worse. Some kids carry backpacks with 40% of their body weight or more. You can see them walking to school leaning forward to offset the weight on their backs. Until schools figure out a way to make the loads lighter, we recommend that you get a backpack that is designed to help you stand up straighter. Our favorite is the AirPack Backpack designed by Core Products because of its patented shoulder straps and inflatable lumbar cushion which when properly adjusted redistributes the weight from the shoulders and upper back into the hips promoting a healthier upright standing posture.

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "There is only one option I know of to stop getting older and I'm not ready for that. But there are options to stop or slow down the aging process and I have a really good one. Dr. Parrish Skrien's chiropractic care is an anti-aging remedy. Since I started going to Dr Skrien, several years ago, I have learned to recognize many health related problems and symptoms can be connected to stress or pressure on the central nervous system which which runs from your brain stem down through your spine and out into every body function or system. A monthly adjustment is part of my regular health care routine and it makes a difference. Thank you Dr. Skrien for your commitment to overall good health."
