Abstract

To compare the frequency and duration of low back pain (LBP) in the past 2 years in female hockey players , with two other groups of women with varying levels of physical activity. In all cases, sedentary participants experienced the greatest total amount of LBP; the hockey group experiencing the least. Hockey participants reported a higher intensity level of their worst and average episodes of LBP, with some evidence of longer duration of episodes. This minor thesis was written by a post-graduate student as part of the requirements of the Master of Health Science (Osteopathy) program.
