If she is only 12 and is already having back pain you should absolutely get her evaluated by a chiropractor. There are many techniques in chiropractic to adjust the spine. 99% of them are safe for children. Choose a chiropractor that sees children and you will be fine. Kids love it and they respond very quickly to the care. Chances are with your daughter being in sports she probably "cracks" her back on her own anyway so she would be used to what an adjustment feels like. The difference is the chiropractor will be very specific on where the adjustments are needed and therefore will be more effective.

Yours in Health,

Fermentation is the process of making alcohol from carbs. So I assume you meant fomentation. Which generally means putting heat on the area. I usually recommend using refrigerator temperature cold. Not ice (freezer temperature), or heat. Heat always feels good and relaxes muscles, but is very inflammatory. Ice is anti-inflammatory, but makes muscles tense. Refrigerator temperature gives you the best of both worlds- reduces inflammation and relaxes the muscles. Keep your cold pack in the refrigerator and use it. Since spondylitis is inflammation of the vertebra it should help. If it is not ankylosing spondylitis, chiropractic can help tremendously.
