Children with Symptoms of Back Pain

Back pain is one of the most frequent reasons people seek chiropractic treatment. From back injuries to spinal conditions, many people have experienced symptoms of back pain throughout their lifetimes but recently, children have been visiting the chiropractor much more frequently than the parents are.

One of the major reasons children develop back problems can be linked to the use of oversized, heavy backpacks which hang over a single shoulder. While it’s recommended to minimize the size of the backpack, it’s often difficult to accomplish this solution as it requires kids to also decrease the amount of supplies they need to be carrying around with them at a time. However, using back packs with adjustable straps over both shoulders can decrease the stress caused on the back of a child.

Varied physical activity can also help keep kids healthy and free of back pain after sitting in a hard, resin chair for extended periods of time. Stretching the muscles and exercising regularly strengthens the muscles of a growing child which in turn can help prevent spinal misalignments as well as damage from an injury.
