I have a 13 year old son who has been complaining of back pain we took him to the doctor and well they said oh it is just growing pains. Well last couple of months pain has gotten worse and he has grown quite a bit, so I took him to urgent care and they took x-rays and said did you know your son had a slight curvature of the spine. No I did not. so they referred us to an orthopedist and we just had mri done and waiting until followup appoint to see what the next step is. He is in a lot of pain not sure of the degrees of the curvature yet. We have tried everything to help with his pain nothing worked until we found 8hour ice packs. I am at a loss not sure what questions to ask or if we just go along with the doctors recommendations.
