Back pain is a very, very uncommon problem in children as their spines are relatively flexible compared to that of adults.
So if your child complains of back pain or any related symptoms – especially if it aggravates after any physical or sports activity, make sure you seek immediate medical help.
It is very important that the cause of back pain be identified and treated/ managed early to ensure the best possible outcome. The optimal course of treatment will be decided after a detailed evaluation of the condition, which may include haematological and radiological investigations like CT or MRI. Remember, not treating the child on time can lead to several potential complications, including disabilities.
