It’s that time of year again in Preston: back
to school! And so
are the backpacks. There’s always a mild debate
about the influence of backpacks
on back pain in young people. There’s always talk about
how the kids are to get all their stuff necessary for
homework to and from from home if not in a backpack. There
is a quandary for you! Ban homework?!
Not likely! Chiropractic Associates understands and is here for those Preston school kids (and
older folks) who use backpacks and get an unexpected bout of Preston back pain.

How Much Back Pain Do Kids Get? Boys Vs. Girls.
The influence of Preston backpacks on young
people’s back pain occurrence is genuine. There’s a higher occurrence of Preston low back pain when carrying
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. The way they carry the backpack is pointed to as
being a factor. (2) Another study done in Italy reported
that more than 60% of school kids 6 to 19 years of age in one
study said they have back pain. Girls who used
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 seems
that the longer they cart the backpacks around, 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) Chiropractic Associates treats adolescents with back pain be it due to
backpack carrying or other causes with gentle, effective chiropractic care incorporating Cox Technic.
