Posture is a bigger concern than most think. With growing workload for school children, the weight of this issue is increasing every day. Carrying heavy weighted and oversized school bags full of heavy books can cause young children to develop serious spinal deformities. Children carrying heavy school bags are developing forward head posture as they are hinging forward at the hips to compensate for the heavy weight on their back. This strains the muscles and in turn pushes the body to go into an unnatural posture alignment and also causes low back pain. While children might not show symptoms or experience pain straight away, in the long term they are developing imbalances in the body which can affect the health of the nervous system. It can not only affect a child in the present but also have long-term effects on their body and render their spine vulnerable to injuries. Therefore the solutions can be either to decrease their workload, that is, the weight of their backpack, or to constantly guide them to a better posture for the betterment of their spinal shape and thus their health. The Indian state of Maharashtra which has now imposed a regulation that school children are not allowed to carry school bags that exceed 10% of their body weight. That means a child who weighs 50kgs' bag should be 5kg and no more. They should also encourage their children to be more active in order to strengthen the spine and have them checked out by a chiropractor on a regular basis.” Heavy school bags are believed to be a contributing factor to skeletal symptoms and represent an overlooked daily stress for schoolchildren. The musculoskeletal pain and discomfort from backpacks is multifactorial. It’s about the combined effects of the heavy weight of them but also the load shape and size and the time spent carrying the load. It’s also related to how the load is positioned on the body.
The Dublin study found that 65% of discomfort was reported in the shoulders, not surprisingly as the popular method of carriage is a backpack style bag with carriage on the back with two straps over the shoulders. There was a reported 30% discomfort in the back.
Why should school children’s backpacks not exceed more than 10% of their body weight?
When a backpack is too heavy the body will have to compensate by tilting forward to counter the effects of gravity. This will alter the alignment of the child’s posture and increase the strain on the spine. The weight of the backpack may also damage the muscles of the upper shoulders due to compression.
What are some of the long and short term effects for children carrying heavy bags throughout their lives?
What are the short term effects?
Initial effects include spinal stress and possible pain and discomfort. Damage to the tissues is not always accompanied by conscious pain though which means it can go unnoticed.
What are the long term effects:
In the long term they may develop imbalances in the postural alignment, which can affect the health of the nervous system. When the alignment of the spine is imbalanced the communication between the brain and the body is negatively affected.
What effect does spinal health have on the brain performance?
Proper alignment and movement of the spine is absolutely essential to brain health. Impulses created by spinal movement charge the brain like a battery. This is why people fell energized after exercise and tired after sitting all day.
If the spine becomes stiff or misaligned the brain will become deficient in these essential impulses resulting in lowered brain and body performance.
What are some of the solutions to address this issue?
Children must use quality backpacks and keep them as light as possible. They must always be worn over both shoulders. Parents should have their children’s spine and postures assessed by a professional to ensure that there are no imbalances that they are unaware of.
Children must stay as active as possible and take regular breaks form sitting to ensure that the spinal supporting muscles are strong and the brain receives the healthy messages from spinal movement.
Advice to parents to ensure that their children do not develop forward head posture:
The first step is to get your children checked regularly. Spinal problems are similar to tooth decay in that they can develop slowly without any conscious symptoms. Teach your children that movement is a required raw material for health and encourage as much physical activity as possible.
The over-use of tablets and smart phones is a severe strerssor that needs to be addressed. If you feel that the backpacks are too heavy communicate with the teachers to see if there is a solution.
So what can you do about it?
To some degree it’s about helping your kid get organised. What you want to do is lower that backpack weight to body weight index. This means is making sure they are only taking the books they need to, to school, leaving books in their lockers or classroom during the day and only carting the ones home they need for homework. Sure it’s easy just to jam all the books in at once, but with some careful planning you can start to chip away at some of the excess weight. How you carry your backpack and they type of backpack you use are all important too. Here’s a basic list of how to.
Backpacks should be ideally no heavier than 10% of a student’s weight when packed.
Make sure the backpack is sturdy and appropriately sized – no wider than the student’s chest
Choose a backpack with broad, padded shoulder straps
Use both shoulder straps – never sling the pack over one shoulder
The straps should be shortened until the bottom of the backpack is just above the child’s waist, and not sitting on their buttocks.
When the straps are shortened to this level, the backpack should lie flat on the child’s back.
Use waist straps.
Don’t overload the backpack – use school lockers and plan homework well in advance
Place all heavy items at the base of the pack, close to the spine, for a better distribution of the weight
Physiotherapist have been helping manage and address the musculoskeletal discomfort that comes from carrying heavy backpacks in kids. Heavy backpacks combined with prolonged periods of sitting and the use of technical devices such and smart phones and tablets are all adding to the increasing load seen in our clinics today. Studies such as this are providing the scientific evidence that these lifestyle factors are detrimental to our children and thus having a child checked for these behaviours and damage or injury prior to symptomology can be justified. Physiotherapist are well suited to perform these checks having an excellent understanding of posture and necessary function of the spine in-order to have greater health.

Stretching is very important for your well-being. Not only does it help you become more agile and flexible, it helps you become better at sports and also makes sure that you have fewer injuries when you are playing sports. Here are some exercises, which are guaranteed to make sure that your flexibility will improve:
1. The runner's stretch
In this stretch, put your right foot forward and then try to touch the floor with your fingertips. If your fingers do not reach the floor, place them as far down as possible. You have to then inhale, and go back to your starting position.
2. The standing side stretch
This stretch starts when you are standing straight upwards with your arms raised above your head and your fingers interlocked. When you breathe out you have to slowly bend your upper body to the right then return to the starting position. After you have reached the starting position, you inhale again and after you have inhaled, you have to stretch your upper body to the left.
3. The forward hang
In this stretch, your starting position is when you stand with your legs apart and then you lock your fingers together and place them behind your back. Once this is done, you breathe in. After breathing in, you have to exhale by bending forward and keeping your hands interlocked above your head. You have to hold this position for 5 seconds.
4. The low lunge arch
This stretch involves bringing your right leg as forward as possible and then lowering your left knee onto the floor. You then have to lock your hands together with your palms facing the floor and your hands in front of your body. You then have to inhale for the stretch. The stretch involves lifting your arms as far up as possible and then stretching as far back as possible keeping your legs in the position they were already in. Once you have finished this exercise, you have to do the exact same thing with the left leg in front.

The last few decades have seen obesity has grown as the new social evil. One of the major culprits is the reduced physical activity and sedentary lifestyle that has become the norm. It is therefore not surprising that weight loss is on everybody's personal goals. In a lot of cases, ironically, the methods and techniques have involved turning the clock back, what was being done a couple of decades ago. Let us look at using stairs for example. From an engineering point of view, elevators and escalators were a major focus area in the 1900s and 2000s. However, now, stair designs that are easy on the body are the highlight.
Let us look at some facts related to weight loss and climbing stairs. These should provide you sufficiently good reasons to start using the stairs next time when you have a choice.
- Fact 1: Climbing stairs help burn more calories per minute than jogging. It is declared as a 'vigorous exercise'.
- Fact 2: Climbing a step helps you burn about 0.2 calories and going down burns 0.05, so to burn 1 calorie, all you need to do is go up 5 steps or go down 20 steps.
- Fact 3: However, though the number of calories burned is less by going downstairs, the muscles and joints used for getting down stairs are different. Using stairs to go up and down should be regularly practiced.
- Fact 4: Climbing stairs require about 9 times more energy than sitting and about 7 times more energy than required to take the lift.
- Fact 5: For going up or down 3 to 4 flights of stairs, taking the stairs helps save about 15 minutes of valuable time (most of it waiting for the lift to arrive).
- Fact 6: Regular use of stairs safeguards you against heart disease, diabetes, muscle weakness and stroke.
- Fact 7: Endorphins are released when you climb stairs, which also induce a feeling of well-being.
- Fact 8: Overweight people burn more calories by climbing stairs.
- Fact 9: Taking one step at a time in more beneficial than taking two at a time. Calories are burned gradually, but more efficiently.
- Fact 10: Climbing stairs is eco-friendly as well, as it reduces carbon emissions. Just another reason why you should avoid the lift!
