people’s back pain incidence is real. There

of 5th to 8th graders report back pain. An influencing factor is likely the
way the back pack is carried. (2) Another study done in Italy documented
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 type of statistic about girls
having more intense back pain and more frequent back pain since25

that the longer they cart the backpacks around, the
more back pain they experience. 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) Executive Chiropractic of Iowa treats adolescents with back pain be it due to
