Although back pain in the athlete is generally of a benign mechanical nature, all complaints should taken seriously and fully evaluated. The physician should be alert to the many problems seen in the back of athletes and aware of what activities and sports specifically tend to aggravate certain problems. Although most of these entities can be treated with a relatively generic exercise protocol, each case must be individually evaluated and treatment tailored to fit the problem. Verf.-Referat
