KNIGHTDALE, N.C. (July 21, 2017)—During the month of August, Access Physical Therapy & Wellness will be providing free posture assessments and backpack fittings at its Clayton and Knightdale locations. Free screenings will be available to all students returning to school in the fall.

“Many young students walk around with backpacks weighing nearly as much as they do,” said Martha Harris, PT, DPT, GCS, Cert. DN, and owner/director of Access Physical Therapy & Wellness’ North Carolina locations. “It is our aim to teach these young people how their backpacks should fit, how much load they can bear, and the general well-being of their posture and back.”

The 30-minute screening, postural assessment, and fitting are free of charge, but appointments are required. Students should bring their backpacks for the upcoming school year to the appointment. Please call your nearest Access Physical Therapy & Wellness to schedule an appointment.
