I found the BTP4 helped fix my posture and reduce the strain on my neck and shoulders, which reduced the inflammation

Back and Neck Problems “Disappear” with BackTpack

This is the most amazing load carrying system ever invented. All my back and neck problems disappeared within 2 days of using it, and as a student carrying many pounds of books it has been a literal lifesaver for me. Every student should have one, as well as anyone who carries any kind of weight
