Save your child from chronic back pain with dr. eugene kramer's tips

  1. 1. Save Your Child from Chronic Back Pain with Dr. Eugene Kramer’s Tips
  2. 2. Back pain is a common sight in the US, but a new and disturbing trend is taking a toll on the lives of people. According to the American Chiropractic Association (ACA), young children are the new victims of back pain and heavy backpacks are a contributing factor to it.
  3. 3. Dr. Eugene Kramer opines that over the past 10 years, a marked growth has been seen in the number of children complaining about back, neck and shoulder pain. This new back pain trend isn’t surprising considering the disproportionate weight they carry in their backpacks- often slung over one shoulder. Other studies have shown that slinging a backpack over one shoulder could worsen the curvature of the spine in scoliosis patients.
  4. 4. According to the preliminary results of the studies conducted by ACA, show that longer a child wears a backpack, the longer it takes for the curvature or the deformity of spine to correct itself. The results of these types of studies are important because many schools have removed lockers from the school premises, forcing the students to carry their books with them all day long.
  5. 5. He has been a treating physician known for offering excellent services since 1997. Besides, he has also worked for Dr. Frederick Chassman as an associate for more than a year. His patients should note that since October 17th, 2010, he moved his practice to 1345 Westminster Street, Providence, R.I. 02909.
  6. 6. Dr. Eugene Kramer has come up with few tips which can help your child get rid of the back pain. • Make sure to opt for a back pack having wide, padded straps. Non-padded straps are uncomfortable, and can dig into your child's shoulders.
  7. 7. • A back pack with individualized compartments must be the pick since contents can be positioned most effectively. Make sure that pointy or bulky objects are packed away from the area resting on your child’s back. • Another aspect to be kept in mind is that your child’s back pack should not weigh more than 5 to 10% of his or her body weight. Heavier back pack will make the child droop forward in an attempt to support the weight on his or her back.
  8. 8. • The shoulder straps should be adjustable so the backpack can be fitted to your child's body. Straps that are too loose can cause the backpack to dangle. • Urge your child to carry the back pack on both the shoulders. Lugging the back pack on one shoulder can cause a disproportionate shift of the body weight on one side.
