Brief description Low back pain (LBP) is a common, expensive health complaint. It often occurs with other serious health problems (comorbidities) that can negatively impact upon the course and disability of LBP in adults. This investigation will explore the impact of LBP comorbidities in adolescents, and how this transitions into early adulthood. This will help identify individuals at risk of developing disabling LBP, help determine cause versus consequence, and inform strategies to ease the burden of LBP.
