Back to SchoolSince you’ll be needing to get your children ready to return to school in the up and coming next few weeks and will be beginning to start purchasing their new school supplies very soon, I would like to take the opportunity now, before you even begin purchasing any of your children’s back to school supplies to inform you about the single most important thing you should be know about to help protect your children’s future health.

As a proud member of the Association of New Jersey Chiropractors, in an annual campaign effort to inform you about National School Backpack Safety Awareness Day, which takes place every year on the third Wednesday of September, I have put together a short video presentation.

What you will know after watching this video presentation is:

  1. What the dangers associated with the improper use of backpack are.
  2. What the guidelines for the proper use of backpacks are.
  3. Safety tips to help you prevent future health problems in your children due to the improper use of backpacks.

All of which you can watch right now just by clicking on it below:

I hope you enjoyed this video presentation and it served it’s purpose to inform you about the dangers associated with improper backpack use and it helps you to better ensure your children’s future health.

As always, I welcome any of your thoughts and would be glad to help answer any of your further questions you may have.

      Thanks for stopping by and commenting Dr. Scott! I really appreciate it and am glad you enjoyed the video.
      As I mentioned in the video: By educating teachers, parents, and children in proper body mechanics and a healthy posture, we can help them grow up with less pain, reduce the odds of future disability, and help this future workforce decrease on-the-job injuries. As many adults with chronic spinal conditions can trace their problems to years of bad posture habits and poor body mechanics formed in early childhood.
      So feel free to share this post with any of your patients who are teachers or who have any school age children or grandchildren!

    Brilliant post Dr Heins. As it happens we are currently working on a letter to send to our local schools and I was wondering if you would be kind enough to direct me to the source of the images you have used in the section titled “How Not To Wear The Back Pack” which shows the spine in two images (female and male).
    My husband is Dr Richard McMinn – (from New Zealand) – we practice in Brighton, United Kingdom. Richard graduated from Palmer College in 1977!
    I very much look forward to hearing from you.
    Kind regards,

      Thank you, Karen for stopping by and commenting on this post, and for your kind compliment!
      The pictures you are referring to were taken from the ANJC members only password protected section of the site. However, since this is such an important subject matter about children’s future health, I’m sure the ANJC wouldn’t mind it, if I sent you copies of them to your email address for the use in your letter to the local schools across the pond.
