TSAOG’s Dr. Ephraim K. Brenman was interviewed by WOAI’s Berit Mason yesterday regarding backpack-related concerns that parents should consider.

According to Dr. Brenman, “I’m probably getting at least one child a month coming in with shoulder, neck, mid-back pain, lower-back pain and hip pain.  It’s mainly because of the backpack.”
