Carrying Tip #1

A mother helps her children put on their back packs.

Split the load.

Divide groceries into two lighter bags to distribute the weight more evenly. If carrying just one bag, alternate sides. Always carrying a bag, purse or briefcase on one side can put strain on your neck, shoulder and lower back – switch it up.

If you feel pain during or after carrying a heavy load, Arbutus Physiotherapy & Health Centre can help.
