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

The influence of Largo backpacks on young people’s back pain occurrence is real. There is a higher occurrence of Largo low back pain when carrying backpacks likely 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 reported back pain. Girls who carried backpacks expressed having more severe pain and more frequent back pain than boys. (3) Is this skewed 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 thanks to anatomical, physiological and/or environmental differences between boys and girls. That makes another great subject for the next backpack/back pain study! (3) Hollstrom & Associates Inc treats adolescents with back pain be it due to backpack carrying or other causes with gentle, effective chiropractic care incorporating Cox Technic.
