Abstract

There are several other entities such as infection, tumors, and fractures that I have not covered in this article. These entities are not common in adolescent athletes but must always be considered when athletes do no respond to typical treatment protocols for the problems I have discussed. The most important theme to take from this article is that low back pain in adolescent athletes is a problem that should not be ignored but instead fully evaluated because structural problems are quite common in this patient population.
