Project Details


The Young Spine Questionnaire (YSQ) and the Young Disability Questionnaire – Spine (YDQ-S) were developed to measure spinal pain in adolescents (prevalence, frequency, intensity, and consequences of spinal pain). Our study builds on work of Danish chiropractors. We aim to: 1. cross-culturally adapt, 2. test construct validity and test-retest reliability, and 3. assess the construct responsiveness of the YSQ and YDQ-S in Australians aged 13-18 years. This grant will be used to address aim 2 and 3 above.
