Higher Risk of Low Back Pain for Competitive Youths
A recent study published in the American Journal of Sports Medicine by researchers from the Institute of Clinical Medicine, University of Tsukuba in Japan found that excessive exposure to competitive sports activities during youth was associated with low back pain and symptoms in the lower extremities, with the severity varying with the sport.
The researchers suggested that to reduce low back pain in youth, factors that may be causing low back pain, such as sport-specific postures and motions, thought these suggestions need to be investigated.
