A Healthy Backpack

image of kids wearing backpacks.

Another important wellness essential product is an ergonomically designed backpack. It is amazing how we can put thousands of pages of data onto a microchip smaller than the eye can see, yet kids are carrying backpacks that are heavier than ever filled with text books. Many schools are taking away kid's lockers making the problem even worse. Some kids carry backpacks with 40% of their body weight or more. You can see them walking to school leaning forward to offset the weight on their backs. Until schools figure out a way to make the loads lighter, we recommend that you get a backpack that is designed to help you stand up straighter. Our favorite is the AirPack Backpack designed by Core Products because of its patented shoulder straps and inflatable lumbar cushion which when properly adjusted redistributes the weight from the shoulders and upper back into the hips promoting a healthier upright standing posture.

Testimonials

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "Great 1st visit with Dr. Shannon! Being a nearly 30 year chiropractic patient AND chiropractic assistant new to the area, I she came highly recommended by my neighbor & friend. I can say with all honesty that she is through, a great adjuster and has a great 'table-side manner'. No pushy "come in 3x per week" or "buy these vitamins" like some chiropractors. Just gives you what you need."

  • "I will drive to Hale from Tawas to see Shannon. She know what she's doing, gives the necessary advice for optimal after care (you just have to do it if you want to quit hurting) and she's the most thorough Chiropractor I know comparatively to any in Tawas, so the drive is worth it. I've told some people that if you need to leave with some of the same pain, especially when you felt the crunch. You'll feel better tomorrow. Pain builds character"
