By the end of their teen years, 50% of children have experienced at least one episode of low back pain, with 15% of those experiencing frequent or continual pain. (Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics 2003; 26:1-8). Research indicates that this may be due to the improper use of backpacks. Watch your child struggle to put on and walk with his or her backpack, and you will realize the potential danger.
Dr. Lisa Stein, DC and Dr. David Saber, DC are excited to offer a free Backpack Safety Program to the Cupertino community to help our kids avoid damage and chronic injuries due to heavy, poorly-loaded backpacks. This fun, 30-minute, free, hands-on program is designed to give teachers, students, and parents simple tips to avoid unnecessary injuries that can lead to life-long back problems. If you want to join us at our office or would like to know more, please call 408-255-2592 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
