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.

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "Great Chiropractor! He takes time with his patients. Kim is so pleasant. There is never a problem with billing or insurance issue when testing and adjustments are needed."

  • "Dr. Uhl really helps with my neck and back pain. It is definately worth the trip from Oneonta. I so wish he was closer, but I will never go to see anyone else."
