A new study published on Thursday in Africa Health Sciences, concluded that adolescent low back pain is common among secondary school students in Ibadan.

Adolescent low back pain (ALBP) can be considered a signal or precursor of a serious organic disease or telltale sign of future incidence of low back pain in adulthood. A copy of the research gotten by IBPulse.com revealed that the prevalence of ALBP is significantly associated with age and engagement in commercial activities, but not with gender.

While gender was not significantly associated with ALBP, the researchers said the condition is associated with age and engagement in commercial activities.
