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 documented
that greater than 60% of school kids 6 to 19 years of age in one
study reported back pain. Girls who carried
backpacks stated that 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
they carry more stuff than boys? No. It is more likely
that the longer they carry the backpacks, the
more back pain they have. This may be thanks to
