Doctor my 13 year old daughter has developed slip disc in her L4 and L5 vertebrae. What should be her treatment?

1 Doctor Answered
Disc prolapse at age of 13 years is not common, though it still may occur. Treatment is analgesics, back care, rest and physiotherapy. However, the child needs to be examined before I can suggest precise treatment
