Going back to school days, schooling was fun except the weight of the books in the bag which was of a great concern for our delicate shoulders. Research suggests that the weight of the back pack carried to school should not be more than 20 percent of the total body weight of the child that is carrying it. This never happens as the load of the bag gradually increases with every academic year. So, the problem of frozen shoulder or back pain gets associated with us from a very tender age. Let us discuss in brief some effects of carrying heavy backpacks.
1. Health Effects: Carrying heavy backpacks for a prolonged period of time can have adverse effect on your neck, shoulder and back going down all the way to the spinal cord and waist line. It can strain or compressthe blood vessels which are very common symptoms in these cases. Stiff neck is also a probability and all this makes it painful nothing more. Ensure that you carry light and only the items that you require for your travel.
