    10 facts about back pain in children and adolescents

     One in five youths experience back pain. In a collaborative work with Dr. Jennifer A. Rabbits (University of Washington, and Seattle Children’s Hospital), Dr. Julia Wager and Prof. Dr. Michael Frosch (German Pediatric Pain Center) developed a 10-point fact sheet to depict the special features of back pain in children and adolescents (Global Year 2021_Back Pain in Children and Adolescents.pdf).

    Besides risk factors in this age group also challenges in diagnostics and treatment are described. Some research points at the sustainable effects of early interventions to reduce the severity of chronic back pain. However, further pediatric research is needed to better understand the prognosis.
