With back to school time right around the corner, Claxton-Hepburn Medical Center’s Rehab Services Department reminds you to think about your backpack for the upcoming school year. The Rehab Services team wants you to know how to pick out the right backpack, learn the correct way to fill it, and how to properly wear it.

“Getting the right backpack is very important,” says Cinci Weaver, director of Rehab Services at Claxton-Hepburn. She recommends these following tips: “When empty, the backpack should not be wider than your chest; wider, padded shoulder straps are more comfortable; use the separate compartments to distribute the load.”
