The influence of Brooks backpacks on young people’s back pain occurrence is real. There’s a higher occurrence of Brooks low back pain when carting backpacks probably due to the increased forces in the spinal discs. (1) One Brazilian study reports 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 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 since25 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.
