How Much Back Pain Do Kids Get? Boys Vs. Girls.
The influence of New York backpacks on young
people’s back pain incidence is real. There’s a higher occurrence of New York low back pain when taking
backpacks likely because of the increased forces in
the spinal discs. (1) One Brazilian study documents that 55.7%
of 5th to 8th graders report back pain. The way they carry the backpack is pointed to as
being a factor. (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 carried
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’s more likely
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) Dr. Gary Stefanick treats adolescents with back pain be it due to
backpack carrying or other causes with gentle, effective chiropractic care incorporating Cox Technic.
