Customer Question
kick scooter up the hill...
My 5 year old gets transient back pain after he uses his kick scooter up the hill in our neighborhood. He doesn't cry or anything, just mentions his lower back hurts for a second. No other mentioning of back pain at other times. Could it be muscle spasms or fatigue? I'm a worrier and worried about spinal cord tumor.

Greetings,
Thank you for your question.
I am Dr. Su S. and I will try my best to help you.
Transient back pain is likely due to muscle strain associated with activity, effort.
It is not due to a spinal tumor.
In tumor the pain will be persisting.
There can be swelling.
Please do not worry.
I hope this information will be helpful.

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
children can get back pain/muscle strain from scootering? A spinal cord tumor would cause pain all of the time?
Pediatrician: Dr. Su S., Pediatrician replied 2 years ago
children can get muscle strain too.
In tumor the pain will not be present during the scootering.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
