how the kids are to get all their stuff required for
homework back and forth from home if not in a backpack. There’s a quandary for you! No more homework, maybe?!
Not likely! Johnson Chiropractic understands and is here for those Richmond school kids (and
older folks) who use backpacks and get an unexpected bout of Richmond back pain.

How Much Back Pain Do Kids Get? Boys Vs. Girls.
The influence of Richmond backpacks on young
people’s back pain incidence is real. There
is a higher occurrence of Richmond 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. An influencing factor is likely the
way the back pack is carried. (2) Another study done in Italy showed
that more than 60% of school kids 6 to 19 years of age in one
study said they have back pain. Girls who used
backpacks stated that 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 experience. This may be thanks to
anatomical, physiological and/or environmental differences between boys and
girls. That makes another great topic for the next backpack/back
pain study! (3) Johnson Chiropractic treats adolescents with back pain be it due to
backpack carrying or other causes with gentle, effective chiropractic care incorporating Cox Technic.
