Back Pain In Kids

The past two weeks we have talked about pediatric headaches.

If you haven’t seen those posts yet by the way, you can scroll down and check them out right here.

Another thing that can and does happen is lower back pain in kids.

One study showed that 65% of school-aged kids suffer from lower back pain and another study showed that kids as young as 10 years of age were already showing signs of early degenerative disc disease in the lumbar spine (lower back).

This is a consequence of poor spinal alignment/posture distortions.

Have you ever seen your kids sitting cross-legged on their bed hunched over their cell phone, tablet, laptop or a video-game?

Not only does this over time cause forward head posture (tech neck) and humping of the upper back, but it is very stressful on the muscles, spinal joints and spinal nerve roots in the lower back area.

This can certainly cause lower back ache.

So parents, please remember to teach your kids to stand up straight and sit up straight both.
