Malverne Back Packs and Back Pain: A Chiropractic Topic

It’s that time of year again in Malverne: back 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. Malverne Health & Wellness has a way to relieve 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.
