Carrying Tip#2

A mother helps her children put on their back packs.

Fit your backpack.

Choose a pack with two padded straps and a chest or waist belt to provide adequate support. Tighten the straps so the pack fits against your upper back and the waist belt is snugly fastened around your hips. Place heavier items in the center and close to your back.

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