Tarrytown Back Packs and Back Pain: A Chiropractic Topic

It’s that time of year again in Tarrytown: back to school! And so are the backpacks. There’s always a mild debate about just how harmful (or not!) back packs are back pain in young people. There is always mild debate about how the kids are to get all their stuff required for homework back and forth from home if not in a backpack. There is a quandary for you! Ban homework?! Not likely! Tarrytown Chiropractic understands and is here for those Tarrytown school kids (and older folks) who use backpacks and find themselves experiencing Tarrytown back pain. Tarrytown Chiropractic has a treatment plan to relieve Tarrytown back pain!

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

The influence of Tarrytown backpacks on young people’s back pain occurrence is genuine. There’s a higher occurrence of Tarrytown low back pain when taking backpacks likely because of the increased forces in the spinal discs. (1) One Brazilian study documents 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 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) Tarrytown Chiropractic treats adolescents with back pain be it due to backpack carrying or other causes with gentle, effective chiropractic care incorporating Cox Technic.
