A Healthy Backpack

image of kids wearing backpacks.

Another important wellness essential product is an ergonomically designed backpack. It is amazing how we can put thousands of pages of data onto a microchip smaller than the eye can see, yet kids are carrying backpacks that are heavier than ever filled with text books. Many schools are taking away kid's lockers making the problem even worse. Some kids carry backpacks with 40% of their body weight or more. You can see them walking to school leaning forward to offset the weight on their backs. Until schools figure out a way to make the loads lighter, we recommend that you get a backpack that is designed to help you stand up straighter. Our favorite is the AirPack Backpack designed by Core Products because of its patented shoulder straps and inflatable lumbar cushion which when properly adjusted redistributes the weight from the shoulders and upper back into the hips promoting a healthier upright standing posture.

  • "I had a good visit this morning. The good doctor always finds my tender spots."
    Shirley C.
  • "Upper Cervical was super when they were able to work me in for a check up I was not scheduled for, this also included x-rays. I then came back in for a second unscheduled appointment. I received an adjustment which has relieved the pain I was having."
