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

The influence of Fernandina Beach backpacks on young people’s back pain incidence is genuine. There is a higher occurrence of Fernandina Beach low back pain when carting 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 reported that greater than 60% of school kids 6 to 19 years of age in one study reported 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 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) Amelia Chiropractic Clinic treats adolescents with back pain be it due to backpack carrying or other causes with gentle, effective chiropractic care incorporating Cox Technic.
