to school! And so
are the backpacks. There is always a discussion
about just how harmful (or not!) back packs are back pain in young people. There is always talk about
how the kids are to get all their stuff necessary for
homework back and forth from home if not in a backpack. There’s a quandary for you! Ban homework?!
Not likely! Malverne Health & Wellness understands and is here for those Malverne school kids (and
older folks) who use backpacks and get an unexpected bout of Malverne back pain.

How Much Back Pain Do Kids Get? Boys Vs. Girls.
The influence of Malverne backpacks on young
people’s back pain occurrence is real. There’s a higher occurrence of Malverne low back pain when carrying
backpacks likely due to the increased forces in
the spinal discs. (1) One Brazilian study shows 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 more 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 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 topic for the next backpack/back
pain study! (3) Malverne Health & Wellness treats adolescents with back pain be it due to
backpack carrying or other causes with gentle, effective chiropractic care incorporating Cox Technic.
