As The Twig Is Bent… So Grows The Tree

The Chiro.Org Blog

We’ve all heard that old bromide.

Even after years of published articles, decrying the detrimental effects of backpack overloading on the pediatric spine, children are still routinely required to carry more than the recommended upper limit of 10% of their body weight in schoolbooks.

If this concerns you, you may want to review our

Backpacks and Children Page

for more information to share with your school Administrators, teachers, parents, and their children.

About the Author:

I was introduced to Chiro.Org in early 1996, where my friend Joe Garolis helped me learn HTML, the "mark-up language" for websites. We have been fortunate that journals like JMPT have given us permission to reproduce some early important articles in Full-Text format. Maintaining the Org website has been, and remains, my favorite hobby.
