Back to school - is your child suffering from Bad School Bag Syndrome?


A school bag with no supportive internal structure encourages children to compensate by carrying their bag incorrectly. They do this by hooking their thumbs under the shoulder straps, rounding their backs, contracting their chest muscles and tilting their bodies forward. Carrying badly designed school bags in this way over months and years puts your child at risk of back damage and lifelong posture distortion.

Using the right school bag can reduce risk of injuring your spine

Choosing the right school bag is a lot like buying new shoes. A good bag should fit properly and provide support. Yet studies show that many children continue to suffer ‘bad bag syndrome’ which can lead to lifelong spine dysfunction.
