Low back pain and disability in youth and adult golfers
The main purpose of this study is to understand how different aspects of playing golf are related to low back pain and disability (modification of daily activities due to low back pain). Low back pain is defined as pain between the ribs and the area where the lowest point of the buttocks meets the leg. Another purpose is to compare reported low back pain during daily activity to reported low back pain while playing golf. We also are looking at relationships between low back pain and demographic information like age and skill level.
You will be asked to complete an online survey which should take you approximately 5-10 minutes to complete. You are able to take the survey at a time and location of your choice.
- 10 years of age or older
