(2) Another study done in Italy documented that more than 60% of school kids 6 to 19 years of age in one study reported back pain. Girls who used backpacks expressed 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?
