  1. Adjusted for sex, age, race, Tanner stage, obesity and physical activity.
  2. Odds ratios (OR’s) > 1 indicate increased odds of having MSK pain or Le pain. OR’s <1 indicate a decreased odds of having MSK pain or LE pain. Results are considered statistically significant if the 95% Confidence interval (CI) does not include 1.
