How To Unburden Kids Of Heavy School Bags

Unburden Kids Of Heavy School Bags
  • Aug 14
  • Bone & Joint Care

 "If bags are more than 15-20% of the carrier’s body weight, it can cause problems. The most common is pain in the back and tiredness. But for some it could lead to acute muscle strain. Ensure only books needed are taken”

~ Dr. Narayan Huslse, Consultant Orthopedics, Bone & Joint Surgery


  1. It is important to acknowledge this as something that creates mental stress to the children, whether or not it causes a health problem.
  2. Parents must ensure only books and notebooks needed for the day are packed in the bag.
  3. School bags should have double straps with soft padding so that the weight is evenly distributed.
  4. The bag has to be carried symmetrically – uneven straps and hunching while wearing the bag is to be avoided.
  5. School must have locker facility
  6. Inactivity can worsen the strain/pain. Students must stretch, walk or play often.
  7. An education department guideline should put a cap on the weight of a school bag for each class.
