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.
