It’s that time of year again in Watertown: back
to school! And out come the backpacks. There is always a mild debate
about the influence of backpacks
on back pain in young people. There’s always discussion about
how the kids are to get all their stuff needed for
homework back and forth from home if not in a backpack. There
is a quandary for you! No more homework, maybe?!
Not likely! Watertown Wellness Center understands and is here for those Watertown school kids (and
older folks) who use backpacks and find themselves experiencing Watertown

How Much Back Pain Do Kids Get? Boys Vs. Girls.
The influence of Watertown backpacks on young
people’s back pain occurrence is genuine. There’s a higher occurrence of Watertown 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. 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 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’s 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 subject for the next backpack/back
pain study! (3) Watertown Wellness Center treats adolescents with back pain be it due to
backpack carrying or other causes with gentle, effective chiropractic care incorporating Cox Technic.
