Nearly Half of Teens Have Musculoskeletal Pain.

Surveys completed by 1,021 teenagers revealed that 46.1% had pain in one or more body sites. The data show that teens with musculoskeletal pain in at least one body site had lower quality of life scores and lower sleep quality than their pain-free peers. Additionally, participants with pain in multiple sites reported lower quality of life and sleep quality scores than those with pain in only one area.
