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

The influence of Burlington and Hamilton backpacks on young people’s back pain occurrence is genuine. There is a higher occurrence of Burlington and Hamilton low back pain when carting backpacks likely 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. An influencing factor is likely the way the back pack is carried. (2) Another study done in Italy reported that more than 60% of school kids 6 to 19 years of age in one study reported back pain. Girls who carried 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 because they carry more stuff than boys? No. It is more likely that the longer they carry the backpacks, 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!
