9 year old with back pain

Can anybody please guide me as to what to do & what to check for if my 9 year old girl experiences almost daily upper & middle back pain for 2 weeks now?

I read somewhere that back pain in children are not to be taken lightly.

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

Re: 9 year old with back pain

don't forget to have her feet checked too. My stepson was going to a chiropracter at age 10, my husband and I were not pleased so we took him to our own Dr. Turns out his back pain was due to severe flat feet. Now that he wears good shoes with inserts, he is pain-free.
