Take Evaluation ViewAbstracts

This session will start with illustrative cases to introduce some of the serious conditions that can be seen in children with back pain. Emphasis will be placed on understanding conditions that are common to young children compared to those seen in older adolescents. Pitfalls and disasters to avoid will be emphasized. The importance of making a specific anatomic diagnosis will be stressed so that the provider may choose to manage the condition, and if referral is needed, determine which pediatric specialty to involve.
