From preschool to high school and beyond, your child could be wearing a backpack for 300+ hours per year. Carrying books, tablets, lunch, and accessories can create a lot of stress on your child's neck, shoulders, and back. That's why it's so important to have a backpack that is sized right and ergonomically well-designed to avoid wear and tear on your child's growing body. While kids of all ages may prioritize a cute or cool backpack for school, as a pediatric chiropractor, I recommend looking for one that is also comfortable and functional.
