Outcome of Therapies for Degenerative Lumbar Disk Disease in Children
Outcome After Surgery
Good outcome expected: Outcome is largely dependent on patient selection. In children, resolution of radicular pain has been reported as high as 91% (35).
Outcome After Nonsurgical Treatments
Good outcome expected with DDD: Most patients with LBP have resolution of their initial onset within a week. Proper pain management can significantly help the majority of patients, including a good regiment of rest, NSAIDs, muscle relaxants, heat/ice, and physical therapy.
