Back Pain Services

If your child has been complaining of pain or discomfort, you’re no doubt motivated to deal with the problem quickly. No parent likes to watch their kid suffer, and you need fast and effective professional help if you want to resolve the issue right away. Here at Shadowood Chiropractic Center, we will get you in quickly, diagnose the problem and put your child on the road to recovery as soon as possible.

What Causes Back Pain in Children and Teenagers?

As with adults, a huge range of conditions exists that may cause back pain in a child. These range from sleeping wrong to a severe traumatic accident that still hasn’t healed completely. A few of the most common causes include:

  • Sponylolysis
  • Use injuries from sports
  • Traumatic injuries from a car wreck, fall or other accident
  • Heavy backpacks
  • Stress
  • Spinal tumor
  • Scheuermann’s Disease
  • Arthritis
  • Infection
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Congenital conditions
  • Brain tumors or other problems
  • Imitation of adults or older children with back pain

Whether or not you know the source of the back pain, it’s critical you address it right away.

How Can a Chiropractor Help Heal Your Child’s Pain?

Dedicated chiropractic care can help you do this. We provide a two-step service, first alleviating the pain and symptoms, then treating the root cause of the problem so that it does not recur. If your child plays sports or spends long hours at a desk, you may wish to set up an ongoing chiropractic treatment plan that will negate the worst of the effects from such activities.

If your child has mentioned mild back pain once or twice, it’s okay to wait and see how the problem develops for a few days. However, if they have brought it up multiple times, you need to see someone right away.
