Emne: Re: Child Development & Heavy Weights
Dear List members
I thought the original question was regarding more sustained, uneven loading
carrying a bag or whatever. I may have got the wrong end of the stick but I
would be quite interested to know if there was any evidence to say whether
assymetrical prolonged loading (eg. carrying a bag on one shoulder) would
have any effect on the musculoskeletal system.
Thanks in Advance

not exactly encourage kids to go round chucking themselves off walls.
P.S. This is really bad cos other than that the answer to the question was
