Hi everyone. My 13 year old daughter is in a lot of pain from her lower back. When she was 6 she was diagnosed with scoliosis but the doctors say she grew out of that. Now my pain management doctor wants her to go through physical therapy (even though she hasn’t seen her yet) before doing anything else.
The problem is that it’s standing and moving that hurts the worst for her. She’s waking up at night from the pain and unable to walk at points. Gym class is torture (since she has issues walking.)
Do any of you think physical therapy would be helpful? The more walking she does the worse she gets. I feel like if she does physical therapy she’ll end up in a worse condition. Should I try to find a pediatric doctor for her since my doctor won’t see her?
Thanks everyone in advance,
