10 Backpack Safety Tips That Every Parent Needs To Know For Their School-Aged Child

Chiropractor In Maple, Vaughan Discusses Essential Backpack Safety Awareness Tips

Back in the day when I was in grade school (we ‘re talking about the 80′s) kids didn’t carry or use backpacks. It wasn’t the norm as it is today and so it didn’t pose a common risk to the backs and spines of school-aged children. The most we carried to school was a lunch box and one or two books. Today, I see children with backpacks that are filled to the max and super heavy for their petite body size.

 

 

 

 

Here are 10 essential backpack safety awareness tips that every parent should know:

  1. Avoid choosing a backpack for the fashionable look. Backpacks are needed for their functionality and not for their looks. Choose a good backpack for your child that has evenly distributed compartments, a padded back side and padded shoulder straps.
  2. The backpack size should be proportional to your child body size. A common mistake I see is that the child is carrying a backpack that is too big for them. The danger is that the backpack gets overloaded and heavy.
  3. The weight of the backpack should be 10% of the child body weight. So, an 60 lb child should be carrying a backpack that is 6 lbs. A 60 lb child should NOT be carrying a backpack that is 15 lbs for example. To an adult that may not seem too heavy, but it represents 25% of the child’s body weight (in this example). Imagine an adult with a body weight of 180 lbs carrying a weight on their back that is 25% of their body weight. That equals 45 lbs of weight. I don’t think you would find that appealing nor comforting. The same goes for a child. In fact, a heavy backpack places a tremendous amount of load on the child’s spine which can lead to strains.
  4. All heavy books (like text books) should be stored in the backside of the backpack, closest to the child’s back. Lighter books and items should be stored in the front of the backpack. This allows the heavier items to be closer to the child’s center of mass when standing and walking thereby minimizing strain on their back and neck.
  5. Use the side pockets and compartments evenly. These compartments should be used to store smaller items like water bottles, pencil cases etc.
  6. Teach your child to wear BOTH shoulder straps. This gets the weight of the backpack evenly distributed throughout the child’s body and prevents overloading to one side of the shoulder.
  7. The backpack should never hang low on the child’s back. This will cause slouching and a poor posture to develop. Show your child how to tighten the backpack so it rests right up on the child’s back by tugging on the pull straps located on the shoulder straps.
  8. Leave non-essential items at home, like handheld gaming devices etc. Items that are not essential for schooling needs will increase the weight and bulkiness of the backpack.
  9. Binders add more bulk to the backpack. Minimize the number of binders used and consolidate homework sheets into one smaller folder or binder.
  10. Lunches can add weight and bulk to the backpack. Consider a light reusable lunch bag and have the child carry it by hand to avoid added load to the back.

Parents, by following these 10 backpack safety tips, you can help minimized the weight and load of the child’s backpack and prevent strain and poor posture from developing.

Back pain? Neck pain? Headaches? Thinking about seeing a chiropractor?

Dr. Walter Salubro 1 269x300 Looking For A Chiropractor In Maple, Ontario? Call (905) 303 1009.Here are some FAQs answered by Dr. Walter Salubro, chiropractor in Maple, Ontario.

Question: “I have had low back pain for many years. Can chiropractic help?”

Dr. Walter’s answer:  Chiropractors have helped many people with low back pain. In most cases, if you have had back pain for many years, chiropractic care is certainly a health care option for you. There are many causes of low back pain. A spinal exam by the chiropractor can help determine if the cause of your back pain is of spinal origin and if it can treated or corrected with chiropractic care.

Question: “When I get neck pain, I also get dizziness. I’ve been told I have vertigo. What can a chiropractor do?” 

Dr. Walter’s answer:  The joints of the upper neck (at the base of the skull) give a lot of information to the brain about your body’s position in space, especially while you are standing. A structural problem with the spine, especially in the upper neck can trigger symptoms of dizziness or loss of balance. A chiropractor will do a thorough spinal exam and assess the neck for any shifts or misalignments to determine if the dizziness comes from the neck region. If it does, the chiropractor will suggest a course of treatment that addresses correcting the underlying spinal problem contributing to the vertigo as well as the neck pain.

453 Million Prescriptions … And Canadians Still Getting Sicker?

Monday, January 27th, 2014

Chiropractor in Vaughan (Maple, ON) discusses how to express health naturally from the inside out.

Prescription Drugs 453 Million Prescriptions ... And Canadians Still Getting Sicker?Chiropractic is often referred to as the missing piece of the puzzle? Actually, I like to be more specific and say chiropractic is the missing piece of the health care puzzle.

Well, consider this … 453 million prescriptions are filled out annually (2008 stat). That’s an average of 14 prescriptions per Canadian citizen a year!!!

However, heart disease is on the rise. Cancer is on the rise. Diabetes is on the rise. Obesity is on the rise. The quality of health for children is declining.

Let me ask you, if Canadians are taking so many drugs, why is that people are getting sicker? 

You see … more drugs is not the answer.  Why? … Because health comes from within, not from a plastic bottle with chemicals.

This is why chiropractic is different. Chiropractic doesn’t add health, it removes the interference to the expression of your inborn healing.

Spine Back 225x300 453 Million Prescriptions ... And Canadians Still Getting Sicker?

You have the ability to heal, naturally from the inside out and this is expressed through your nervous system (brain, spinal cord and nerves).  But a shift in spinal bones (spinal misalignment) will cause an interference in that expression of normal health.

Today’s tip, then, is to make spinal care a fundamental pillar of your health and wellness.  Chiropractic works to correct the problem by removing the interference with specific scientific chiropractic adjustments. With the interference removed, the body is in a better position to naturally express full health. Research shows that an optimal spine equals optimal health. 

If you are stressed-out, in pain or already have a health problem or condition, give yourself an opportunity to be guided to heal from the inside out with chiropractic. Get a chiropractic spinal check up today with a chiropractor in your community. If you are looking for answers and want to see how chiropractic can help, please give us a call.

If you are currently under chiropractic care, congratulations and keep it up.  

Be part of health care, not disease care.  It’s about better living naturally, not better living by chemistry. Choose chiropractic today for optimal health. An optimal spine equals optimal health.

If you are new to chiropractic and want to see how chiropractic can help you relieve pain, conquer stress and express more health, give us a call at (905) 303-1009.
