Summer vacation will be over soon and it will be time to prepare our children to return to school. Most students carry their books and personal belongings in backpacks for convenience. Following a few safe tips when wearing them can prevent stress and injury to the back. Wear both straps to distribute the weight evenly over the shoulders and upper back and avoid twistng when putting it on and off. Wear the backpack resting evenly over the middle of the back with it not extending below the low back.
