While backpacks are a useful way for students to stay organized, a heavy backpack can result in shoulder, neck and back injuries. Today there are so many different types of school bags for the fashion conscious student; however the experts at  suggest that students use a backpack to help evenly distribute the weight. Carrying a messenger back or tote bag can cause too much strain on one side of the body. Students may choose to use tote bags, drawstring backpacks, or messenger backs when attending classes that do not require heavy text books or a lot of supplies.
