school children wearing backpacks

Free Backpack Evaluation Screening in East Brunswick

Is your child toting too much, causing back strain and pain? While backpacks are here to stay, they don’t have to be backbreaking.

At Freedman Chiropractic, we understand the importance of a healthy spine, especially during the formative years of your child’s development. That’s why we’re pleased to offer a FREE Backpack Evaluation Screening for school children in our community. This offer is only available until 30 November 2023.

Why Is a Backpack Evaluation Important for Your Child?

As kids head back to school with their heavy textbooks, notebooks, and school supplies, the weight they carry on their backs can significantly impact their spinal health. A poorly fitted or overloaded backpack can lead to various issues, including:

  • Back Pain – Straining under the weight of a heavy backpack can cause discomfort and pain in your child’s back and shoulders.
  • Poor Posture – Carrying an improperly adjusted backpack can contribute to poor posture, which may lead to long-term spinal problems.
  • Muscle Strain – Over time, the strain from carrying a heavy backpack can affect your child’s neck, shoulders, and lower back muscles.
  • Nerve Compression – An ill-fitting backpack can compress nerves, potentially leading to numbness, tingling, or weakness in the arms and legs.

What’s Included in the Evaluation?

Dr. Freedman will thoroughly evaluate your child’s backpack, considering its size, weight, and ergonomic design.
