Normally I would say an MRI is not necessary yet, but she is only 9 years old? Good grief? Is she athletic? Or does she have any chance of anything in addition to the spondy? I would insist on an MRI if I was the mother, just for a little peace of mind. I am only 19 and have already had two spinal fusions. In addition to that I have DDD, spinal stenosis, and several other not too bad yet spine problems. The poor little girl needs to get a full evaluation so they know what they are dealing with and how far the spondy will progress throughout her life.
