How Much Back Pain Do Kids Get? Boys Vs. Girls. 

The influence of Millville backpacks on young people’s back pain occurrence is real. There’s a higher occurrence of Millville low back pain when carrying backpacks likely due to the increased forces in the spinal discs. (1) One Brazilian study documents that 55.7% of 5th to 8th graders report back pain. The way they carry the backpack is pointed to as being a factor. (2) Another study done in Italy reported that greater than 60% of school kids 6 to 19 years of age in one study said they have back pain. Girls who carried backpacks voiced having more severe pain and more frequent back pain than boys. (3) Is this type of statistic about girls having more intense back pain and more frequent back pain because they carry more stuff than boys? No. It seems that the longer they cart the backpacks around, the more back pain they experience. This may be due to anatomical, physiological and/or environmental differences between boys and girls. That makes another great topic for the next backpack/back pain study! (3) Wilson Family Chiropractic treats adolescents with back pain be it due to backpack carrying or other causes with gentle, effective chiropractic care incorporating Cox Technic.
