Great article for awareness and prevention, Margaret Aranda, MD, PhD! I agree, it is horrendous what the kids have to carry nowadays! On the topic of prevention and treatment, have you heard of Egoscue? A simple Google search: "Egoscue is a postural therapy designed to eliminate chronic pain without drugs or surgery. Founded by Pete Egoscue in 1978, the Egoscue Method focuses on a series of gentle stretches and exercises to correct misalignments in the musculoskeletal system of the body." I would add that it is not chiropractic, nor PT. It is more like gentle yoga poses. For backpack pain, see Backpacks Are Affecting Children’s Posture, https://palmbeachegoscue.wordpress.com/2009/09/30/backpacks-are-affecting-childrens-posture/ It has six exercises to help correct posture. Also see: http://www.oregonexercisetherapy.com/blog/10-things-that-lead-to-posture-imbalances-and-pain Google "backpack egoscue" for more! Let me know if you'd like more information. I am stirring up more honey about Egoscue! See the Chronic Pain section of my first honey on the topic: https://www.bebee.com/producer/@jaredwiese/how-could-health-be-impacting-your-life
