Ep 134: Back pain in adolescent athletes (part 1) – who, why and what, with Dr Mitchell Selhorst
Today, Dr Mitchell Selhorst dives in the world of pediatric spondylosis/spondylolysis/spondylolisthesis injuries with Chelsea and Dan. And it’s not all about female gymnasts!
You can expect about 3 in every 10 adolescents with low back pain to have a spondy. So, knowing the population, risk factors, and key things to look for on examination are incredibly important.
Dr Sellhorst reviews the epidemiology, shares the current evidence on the effects of bracing and surgery, and explains how imaging findings can influence rehabilitation decisions.
