How Much Back Pain Do Kids Get? Boys Vs. Girls.
The influence of Paramus backpacks on young
people’s back pain occurrence is genuine. There
is a higher occurrence of Paramus low back pain when taking
backpacks likely due to the increased forces in
the spinal discs. (1) One Brazilian study reports 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 showed
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 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 carry the backpacks, 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 topic for the next backpack/back
pain study! (3) Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center treats adolescents with back pain be it due to
backpack carrying or other causes with gentle, effective chiropractic care incorporating Cox Technic.
