BackpackDanielle Haggerty, physical therapist at St. Joe’s Healthcare sat down with Joy on WABI TV 5’s Healthy Start and chatted about backpack safety as we send the kiddos back to school.

We need to make sure that we get the proper size backpack for the child, be mindful if they are complaining of back pain, check to see that it is packed properly and encourage the child to use the side straps so the backpack won’t move around when they are walking.
