My 2 year old daughter has been having severe back pain for 6 months. We have been to our regular pediatrician, orthopedic, oncology and neurology....no one can help us. She was constipated and we "cleaned" her out, but they told us not to pin our hopes on that being the cause.... it was not the cause. She cries when the pain is bad...and it is with her all day...she will say...my back hurts and we pray for it. She will stop playing and come in for an hour or so saying that her back hurts. Can anyone help us? We are so confused.

  • I am so sorry to hear that, it is hard seeing little ones hurting. Have you thought about taking her to a chiropractor? Even to at least see if her spin is aligned correctley? Any possibility it could be her kidneys? I wish you luck and hope you get that little one feeling better!!! ~stacylynn

  • Good points, StacyLynn. Have they done a urinalysis? How is her urination? Does she have any itching sensations or burning sensations in her vagina area? UTI, Kidney, and yeast infections can cause referred pain to the back. Does she still have constipation problems? Is it difficult for her to have a bowel movement? Does she strain alot? Does this increase her back pain? Does she wake up at night in pain, or is it only when she is out exercising? Has she had any known injuries? A chiropractor who uses gentle manipulation would be very helpful, I think. Find one who also does applied kinesiology and that would be even better. Best wishesDOM
