Wearing backpack in front to correct posture

I was wondering if I could correct my lumbar lordosis by wearing my backpack in front. I am a student and have to wear my backpack (under 20 lbs) to school, but I have really bad posture because of that. There is an incline so I tend to slouch my shoulders to compensate. I feel that by wearing my backpack in the front, I train my muscle to correct my back posture. Can you clarify if this is a good solution for me?

For Tennis Elbow (lateral epicondylitis). The silicone insert fits next to the skin. The insert stabilizes the muscles and apply force to relieve epicondylitis.
