What Might Be The Prolonging Pain In The Back Muscles?

Hello, My daughter is 14 years of age. She has been quite active and enjoyed doing sport and dancing as well as acrobatics. On 13 November she fell on her back during a sports period and I took her for X rays that did not show any abnormalities and they though it may just be a soft tissue injury or hurt muscles. Since 6 months ago she has experienced a lot of back muscle pain in her lower as well as her middle portion of her back. I have taken her for physiotherapy and also administered anti inflammatory medication (iboprofen) but with no real relief. I was refered to an Orthopaedic surgeon who also did an assessment and said nothing seems to be wrong but if I wanted to make sure I could take her for an MRI. At that stage and after a lot of money I did not have the $600 for the MRI and decided to try another round of some physio, but to no avail. My daughter has attempted to do sport but even running or swimming proves to be a severe challenge. She also mentions that the pain feels like it may be in her bones / vertebrae as well. Could this be the symptoms of another condition that I may not be aware of? Kind REgards, Melissa

In my opinion your daughter sufferes from crack fracture in vertebra
which does not easly show on initial x ray , so redoing x ray 1 or 2 weeks after initial injury can show it

if you can afford a normal new x ray
show it to me , i do not need an MRI

for now try bed rest for her + back brace when she moves for 3 weeks

Good. Luck
