Back pain is a common complaint from teenagers, and 94% of teens with low back pain say that their symptoms limit their daily activity. Early intervention of back pain is key because it commonly leads to chronic conditions in adulthood.

A literature review compared the efficacy of back education, exercise, therapeutic physical conditioning, and manual therapy in regards to teens with back pain. The review discovered that exercise and manual therapies led to the biggest improvements in pain, disability, flexibility, endurance, and mental health.
