Advanced Rehabilitation of Jersey City Announces Vital Guidelines for Kids’ Backpack Safety
Date:9/12/2013

Jersey City, NJ (PRWEB) September 12, 2013

While millions of children reluctantly return to school to face yet another year of homework, research from Boston Children’s hospital is proving there’s much more to possibly dread. With many children carrying over a quarter of their body weight in their backpack (twice what the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons and the American Physical Therapy association recommends), a series of shoulder, back and nerve problems are a likely reality for millions of youngsters. To help them avoid pain and possible surgery, Dr. Laurence Oliviero is today announcing a series of vital backpack safety tips.

The New Jersey Chiropractor is concerned about the slow but potentially life-changing damage children are unknowingly inflicting upon themselves.

“With so much weight, seemingly normal actions can have a detrimental effect. For example, carrying a heavy bag on one shoulder can cause neck and back pain, as well as nerve damage to the shoulder area. The same problems can also arise from kids leaning forward to compensate for the weight on their back. A backpack can be worn for a dozen or more hours each week, so it’s a problem we have to take very seriously,” he says.

Working with his colleagues at Advanced Rehabilitation of Jersey City, Dr. Oliviero is delighted to announce his new backpack safety tips:

  • Ensure all backpacks have decent padding in the shoulder straps
  • Make sure the child always wears both straps, to distribute weight equally on both shoul
