ATLANTA, Oct. 30, 2012 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Book bags, rucksacks, purses, laptop bags, backpacks. From a very young age, we are conditioned to carry heavy burdens with us everywhere. This habit follows people their whole life., the Web's leader on all things back pain, knows the consequences of this constant stress and aims to mitigate them.


To that end, the site has created an infographic detailing the many weights people carry throughout out their lives. Even carrying a relatively light bag incorrectly can cause acute pain and spinal asymmetry. Wearing a too-heavy pack day after day can take a serious toll long-term on your backbones and muscles. 

From grade school book bags to post-pregnancy diaper bags to a soldier's hundred-pound field pack, the infographic details the dangers involved with carrying too much extra weight—and how to avoid them.

"I came up with the idea for this infographic when noticed a child walking to school with a pack as big as she was," said site manager Teck Wong. "I remember thinking, 'There's no way that can be healthy.' When discussing the issue with the team, we realized that this habit is not only common; it never really stops. We keep shouldering incredibly heavy bags and other weights our entire lives."

The infographic is large and detailed, following the human lifespan and the corresponding bags and backpacks we carry throughout. It provides general and specific information on the dangers and best practices of wearing them, in an attractive manner that flows smoothly and logically. All its information comes from trusted and cited authorities on the subjects of back pain and proper backpack and bag carrying.

The infographic can be viewed in its entirety here:
