Back pain. Taken motrin, not cured. Suggest some cure and medicine?

My 9 year old son often complains that his back hurts. We ve been thinking maybe it s his mattress and put a board underneath to help with firmness. That hasn t seemed ot help. I try to give him motrin, but he claims that doesn t work. This doesn t stop him from living a normal life, but he mentions it, almost daily.

If your 9 year old son often complains back pain, it may be mechanical or pathological.
Is ur son had bad posture during sitting or he sits for a long time in one posture.
if he complains pain for long duration and he was unable to living a normal life , it may be some pathological cause. So examination of spine is necessary & X-ray and some other inv. may be required to make the diagnosis.
