How Much Back Pain Do Kids Get? Boys Vs. Girls.
The influence of Williamson backpacks on young
people’s back pain occurrence is genuine. There
is a higher occurrence of Williamson low back pain when carting
backpacks probably due to the increased forces in
the spinal discs. (1) One Brazilian study shows 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 more than 60% of school kids 6 to 19 years of age in one
study said they have back pain. Girls who used
backpacks expressed 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 since25
they carry more stuff than boys? No. It is more likely
that the longer they carry the backpacks, the
more back pain they experience. This may be thanks to
anatomical, physiological and/or environmental differences between boys and
girls. That makes another great topic for the next backpack/back
pain study! (3) Apple Country Chiropractic treats adolescents with back pain be it due to
backpack carrying or other causes with gentle, effective chiropractic care incorporating Cox Technic.
