Lighten the load!

Carry only those items that are required for the day or find a new lightweight backpack. Organize the contents of the backpack by placing the heaviest items closest to the back. Some students have two sets of books so as not to have to carry the heavy books to and from school. A backpack with wheels can also help if the person has to carry greater than 15% of their bodyweight.

Wear the backpack on the strongest of your back muscles!

Pay close attention to the way the backpack is positioned on the back. It should rest evenly in the middle of the back. Shoulder straps should be adjusted to allow the person using the backpack to put on and take off the pack without difficulty and allow free movement of the arms. Straps should not be too loose, and the backpack should not extend below the low back.
