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

The influence of New Roads backpacks on young people’s back pain incidence is real. There’s a higher occurrence of New Roads 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. An influencing factor is likely the way the back pack is carried. (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 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 is more likely that the longer they carry the backpacks, 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 subject for the next backpack/back pain study! (3) New Roads Chiropractic Center treats adolescents with back pain be it due to backpack carrying or other causes with gentle, effective chiropractic care incorporating Cox Technic.
