Before beginning is good to know that low back pain is mostly unusual in children before their teen years.
Nevertheless, if you child complains about back pain common causes may be sports injuries or falls.
If your injured child has not been unconscious, can move freely and has no numbness or weakness, use the standard procedures (see tips about back pain treatment for adults).
Major difference for you is to be more careful - avoid excessive heat or cold, and in the case of fever do not give children aspirin. If the pain is unrelated to an injury or other known cause, your health-care provider may want to check for an infection.
