How Much Back Pain Do Kids Get? Boys Vs. Girls.
The influence of Colorado Springs backpacks on young
people’s back pain incidence is real. There
is a higher occurrence of Colorado Springs 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. An influencing factor is likely the
way the back pack is carried. (2) Another study done in Italy documented
that greater than 60% of school kids 6 to 19 years of age in one
study said they have back pain. Girls who used
backpacks stated that 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 have. This may be due to
anatomical, physiological and/or environmental differences between boys and
girls. That makes another great subject for the next backpack/back
pain study! (3) The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR treats adolescents with back pain be it due to
backpack carrying or other causes with gentle, effective chiropractic care incorporating Cox Technic.
