Re: 9 year old with back pain
Well, I can tell you to get it checked NOW. She shouldnt be having pain at that age. that is right around the time my back problems began. I am now 35 years old and scheduled for surgery next month.
She may have slight scoliosis, or a deformed vertebae. (mine was a deformed vert) They may fit her with a back brace for either. I got my first glorious back brace when I was 10. They may treat it differently now. if you get her treatment now, she may be ok as an adult. back pain is awful. Good luck, keep us posted. -Onyx
