Do take care.
Physical therapists or physiotherapist are not medical drs. They work alongside medical drs also. Many are in private practice. I always suggest you get examined by a physciatrist first to establish proper diagnosis and then appropriate treatment plan. Physciatrists also can do much more re pain relief nerve blocks injections. I hope this helps. They are the experts in rehabilitation of the whole body. I was always taught by an old professor of medicine. The body will heel itself if you give it the right environment. Also with the help of the right Practitioner.
You need to have a pediatric neurologist, physical therapist, occupational therapist, orthopedic physician, clinical nurse specialist, psychiatrist/psychologist, dietician, care coordinator, social worker, and genetic counselor. At later stages, a pulmonologist and a cardiologist. This is the team I work with to improve the quality of life in a child. It is imperative that you surround yourself with the best. You may, if not already, get referred to a social worker to get things in place. You will probably require adjustments to the home, etc. You must get all this in place. In Edinburgh, where I trained, we all work as a team in the children’s hospital to make life easier for the parents and the child. I also would encourage you to get in touch with a group of like-minded parents and join in the research of this disease. Though it’s rare affecting boys more than girls, there are substantial amounts of parents who you should get in touch with to help support you also. I wish you all blessings for the future and it will be bright. I have had some of my children go on to be married and have degreed education.
I hope this helps.

It can be associated with something you ate or drank before workout. Breathing too shallow.
So if you get a pain in running slow down and walk put your hand on your belly and breathe deeply. If you are breathing from your lower lungs your tummy should rise and fall I have never seen anything sinister ,but if it continues then get checked out by a physciatrist or sports medicine dr. Check to see what you are eating it can be a digestive issue. I had a patient who ate bananas and got abdominal pain. But eating apples he was fine. Listen to your body. How are your bowels ? Let me know if I can help you further
I would take your son to a physiatrist to check out the mobility of his shoulder, as certain movements might be worse than others. Check all this; a treatment plan can then be put in place. Physiatrists are medical doctors who help heal the body without surgery. He will be fine, but listen to him if he says it’s painful. I am old school where we did not rely on tests, X-rays, etc. We did a proper head-to-toe check and listened to the child. Two hands and ears are still the best equipment a doctor can possess.
Hugs for a happy child.
Good luck and take care. Remember, you only have one body. Look after what you have.
Did he bruise the spinal cord? Does he have paralysis? Has he had an MRI to find out the type of spinal cord injury he has? The sooner treatment is implemented, the better. The location of his injury will determine his prognosis and his mental health is a huge part of getting him to feel better. Often, patients suffer from depression, so emotional support is key.
Physical therapy is very important and sometimes steroid injections to reduce inflammation. Stem cells are used in Europe and some clinics are involved in the US, but this treatment is still being studied. These cells have the ability to regenerate damaged tissue. I would have the family look into this treatment. There are a number of sports medicine clinics doing this treatment. However, in the US, it is not covered through insurance. Other forms of treatment are spinal laser therapy and shock wave therapy. It is a long haul unfortunately, and getting his team of doctors to ascertain the best treatment plan is very important.
