What are the Common Adolescent Spinal Injuries?
Children's Back Pain
Adolescents can be particularly vulnerable to spine injuries mainly due to a combination of high flexibility and low muscle strength and control.
The competitive athlete and most individuals who exercise regularly or maintain a level of fitness and core stability control are less prone to spine injury and problems due to the strength and flexibility of supporting structures. Your physiotherapist can assist the resolution of any deficits in this area. Luckily, problems involving the lower lumbar spine are rare in athletes and account for less than 10% of sports-related injuries. Injuries do occur in contact sports and with repetitive strain sports.
Spondylolisthesis is a major concern and need to be appropriately treated by a physiotherapist with a special interest in these type of injuries. Luckily, most injuries are minor, self-limited, and respond quickly to physiotherapy treatment.
