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

The influence of Fort Wayne backpacks on young people’s back pain incidence is genuine. There is a higher occurrence of Fort Wayne low back pain when carrying 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 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 expressed having more severe pain and more frequent back pain than boys. (3) Is this type of 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 due to anatomical, physiological and/or environmental differences between boys and girls. That makes another great subject for the next backpack/back pain study!
