While chronic back pain is common in adults, children and teenagers are much more resilient. Their flexibility means they rarely suffer the same types of back complaints as adults. In fact, chronic back pain is so unusual in young children that a complaint of such pain usually warrants a prompt and detailed medical consultation.
According to our Stoke on Trent chiropractor, children are far less likely to put their spines under the kind of severe stresses that adults do. Because of this, significant back pain in children is extremely unusual and any discomfort tends to be short-lived. Also, younger children usually self-limit their activities and tend not to repeat actions that cause them pain. This helps their recovery if a back injury does occur.
Back pain in children should never be overlooked. Contact a healthcare professional if you are concerned about any symptoms in your child.
