It is critical for young female athletes to maintain regular visits to their chiropractor. Please note that young female athletes are around the age of 23 years old. Although it is important for anyone to maintain regular visits to their doctor, young female athletes are at a higher risk for lower back pain.

There was a recent study done on young female athletes proving that lower back pain is a common experience. The same study looked into which sports (played by young female athletes) causes to most lower back pain.

Results showed basketball leading with a high percentage of young female athletes experiencing lower back pain. Following closely to basketball is karate and badminton. Keep in mind that these are the leading sports that cause lower back pain to young female athletes, but far from the only sports that do so.
