Is your child complaining about back or neck pain? It could be their backpack.
It’s hard to believe that thousands of central Wisconsin students have been in school for months now with backpacks filled with assignments and books strapped to their backs. But is your child’s backpack a blessing or a burden?
Many of these convenient carryalls will lead to back and neck pain.
See a medical provider at once if your child’s back pain lasts for more than several days or gets worse. If fever, nausea, tingling, numbness, trouble sleeping or walking, accompany back pain, it may signal a more serious condition.
