Preston Back Packs and Back Pain: A Chiropractic Topic

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. Chiropractic Associates has a way to relieve 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’s more likely 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.
