Back Pain (Pediatrics)

  • Introduction

  • Conservative Treatment

Spondylolysis is a fracture of a vertebra.  It ypically occurs as the result of stress and is frequently found in the lowest portion of the spine.  However, muscular low back pain can present similarly and is more common, especially in adolescents.  Differentiating Spondylolysis from muscular low back pain requires an X-ray, and sometimes advanced imaging studies such as MRI, CTs, or bone

Conservative (Non - Surgical) Treatment

Both conditions benefit from non-steroidal, anti-inflammatory medications and physical therapy.  Patients with Spondylolysis must restrict certain sports/activities that could worsen the condition.
