Back pain in kids is on the rise. A study published in the journal Spine found 6% of 10 year olds complain of back pain, increasing to 10%- 15% for 12 year olds.

One of the main times in any person’s life when their spine is subject to damage is during childhood while they are still growing. A leading cause of disruption in the spinal development and posture is the use of a backpack.
