How Young is too Young for Back Pain?

Many people are under the impression that there is a certain age range for back pain and related conditions. But back pain knows no age. This article will dive into the topic of age and back pain – we’ll discuss the various conditions and injuries that can impact a person throughout different stages of life, and how to best treat these causes of back pain.

Back Pain Has No Age Limit

Back pain can impact anyone at any age. Just because back pain is more common as our bodies age and break down does not mean that a teenager, or even a child can’t experience back pain. Indeed, some conditions that cause back pain (such as tethered cord syndrome) begin at birth.

There are many conditions and injuries that can result in back pain. Some are more likely to impact older patients – such as degenerative discs disease or arthritic conditions that develop with age. But injuries can happen to anyone at any point in life. Even a teenager or a child involved in a car crash, for example, can sustain a disc herniation that leads to significant back pain.
