How can Heavy Purses and Backpacks Lead to Back Pain? 

Backpacks, purses, messenger bags, and briefcases are made to support the weight of books and supplies when being carried by students. Wear your backpack correctly using both straps around your shoulders and meeting the weight requirements to prevent shoulder pain and neck pain. For purses, cross body bags, and briefcases pay particular attention to weight requirements and rotate the side of the body you carry it on from time to time.  

What are Some Tips for Sitting Correctly at Desks?

One of the biggest complaints among students this time of year is having lower back pain. This generalized pain is caused by sitting incorrectly for too long in chairs at desks. Use ergonomics to improve your posture when sitting in class. Sit up straight and do not slouch back or forward. As you sit, squeeze in your stomach from time to time to help strengthen your core. 

How can a Chiropractor in Michigan Help Students Reduce Back to School Aches and Pains? 

Visit your chiropractor to get a chiropractic evaluation and routine spinal realignment. Maintain regular chiropractic adjustments, as well as specialized treatments. These include Class IV k-laser therapy, physical therapy, and nutritional counseling, as well as massage therapy in Garden City, MI only.
