Fox 6 News in Milwaukee just had a story, yet another back to school story, on the hazards of wearing the wrong backpack. Seriously. Fox interviewed some orthopaedic (why is this word spelled like this, why) surgeon who talked about the injuries that can occur. In the end, thankfully, we were told about what to look for when shopping for a backpack to buy our kids and how to wear one – key information that could very well help our kids avoid such devastating injuries as “occasional lower back discomfort”.
Backpack injuries? Really?
