Causes Of Back Pain In Children Aged 6 Years?
Good morning … I’m Desi from Medan. My son, who is 6 years old during his first grade in elementary school (precisely from July 2019), often complains of back pain, especially in the morning after waking up. Even though my child is a big child for children his age. What I want to ask is what causes my child’s lumbago? Does it have something to do with my child’s legs which are a bit curved backwards? although these rights do not affect him walking or running. For the answer, I thank you
Thank you for the question.
The shape of a child's feet that are not perfect, can indeed make it easier for children to feel pain, aches, and tingling around the waist and back. But not only that, low back pain in your child, which appears mainly in the morning, may also be caused by other factors, such as injury, stones or urinary tract infections, kidney disorders, nerve pain, scoliosis, hernias, intestinal obstruction, lordosis, peritonitis, pneumonia, pleurisy, bronchitis, malnutrition, fibromyalgia, malingering, and so on.
This pain in the waist should be checked directly to the doctor or pediatrician if it has happened a very long time, recurring very often, or so intense that it makes it difficult for even a child to have mild activity. With direct examination, or supporting examinations, such as x-rays, ultrasound, urine tests, and so on, surely doctors can provide the correct treatment.
In the meantime, to improve the pain in his waist, you can first apply a warm compress or apply a pain reliever cream on the child's waist. Do not carelessly massage, bend, or ring the child's aching waist. Give your child plenty to drink and a variety of foods that have a balanced nutritional value. Encourage children, so that they are diligent in exercising early, do not like to hold back urination, and avoid activities that are vulnerable to causing injury around his waist. Finally, make the child always calm, don't be afraid or overly sad, so that the pain gets better.
Hope this helps ...
