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

The influence of Tonawanda backpacks on young people’s back pain incidence is genuine. There is a higher occurrence of Tonawanda low back pain when carrying backpacks probably because of 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 greater than 60% of school kids 6 to 19 years of age in one study reported 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 since25 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!
