CW33: Heavy Backpacks Cause Back Pain in Kids

Overloaded backpacks are problem among teens. Pediatrician Dr. Monica Beamer, who is on the medical staff of Baylor Medical Center at Carrollton, isn't surprised and said heavy backpacks are a growing problem. "They are having back pain and they just don't know what it's being caused by, they're not sleeping well at night and that causes problems with attitude during the day, so it's not just a back problem, it's an all-over problem," said Dr. Beamer. The story aired Friday, Jan. 29, on CW33’s 9 p.m. news.
