I know that children can have disc problems but it is not common and usually associated with an injury during athletics or a fall. A sacral fracture in a child is usually the result of a fall on the hind end. However, sacral stress fractures can also occur. Those are most likely seen in runners but I would think any sport with lots of running might contribute [like soccer].
I can only imagine your shock at the diagnosis. What is the doctor recommending at this point? Are they sending her to a specialist [I hope so!]?
Here's hoping that an easy resolution can be found.
