Montreal Back Packs and Back Pain: A Chiropractic Topic

Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic understands and is here for those Montreal school kids (and older folks) who use backpacks and find themselves experiencing Montreal back pain. Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic has a treatment plan to relieve Montreal back pain!

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

The influence of Montreal backpacks on young people’s back pain incidence is real. There is a higher occurrence of Montreal 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 showed that greater than 60% of school kids 6 to 19 years of age in one study said they have back pain. Girls who carried backpacks voiced 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 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) Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic treats adolescents with back pain be it due to backpack carrying or other causes with gentle, effective chiropractic care incorporating Cox Technic.
