Teenagers Back Problems

The main problem with teenagers: caring heavy bags in the shoulders, therefore disbalancing the spine, causing a mechanical compression to one side, which contracts the muscles to compensate in the opposite site. The muscles go into spasm. Treating these muscle spasms are not difficult, but unless one removes the heavy bags from the shoulder this condition can not be cured. That is why it is important to explain to teenagers about the mechanics of the spine and necessity not to carry anything in the shoulders or heavy bags on the back.
