How children are injured by heavy backpacks

Injured in Charlotte, NCChildren hurt by backpacks

It’s time for the kids to go back to school and before you buy that giant sized backpack that can carry everything from lunch to books to sports equipment; stop and think about how much weight can your child safely carry. Every year school-aged children are injured, because of excessively heavy backpacks.

Consider the basic health problems that heavy backpacks can cause:

  • Poor posture
  • Hip pain and soreness
  • Misalignment of the back and neck
  • Knee injury
  • Headaches
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Shoulder injury

Your child is definitely at risk for all of the above problems if they constantly carry a backpack that is too heavy. However, the most concerning issue should be misalignment of the back and neck because this can lead to even more long-term problems.
