The course and prognosis of extremity problems in adolescents

This study is nested within the Svendborg Project involving 1,300 elementary school children aged 11-13 in the Danish town of Svendborg. The Svendborg Project is originally designed to evaluate the effect of increased physical activity on present and future health in children using, among many other measures, weekly follow up through text messaging. In this project, frequencies, recurrences and patterns of musculoskeletal complaints will be investigated and the potential influence of physical activity, psychosocial background and treatment will be explored.
