This book brings together the congenital, acquired and traumatic conditions which may affect the child’s cervical and thoraco-lumbar spine. The immature spine poses considerable diagnostic dilemmas and radiographs are often difficult to interpret. The aetiology of deformity, its assessment, monitoring and treatment are comprehensively described. Back pain in children receives special attention. Care has been taken to identify symptoms and signs which should raise our level of anxiety and those which are likely to resolve. Where surgery is necessary the principles and risks are defined. This book starts appropriately in considering the principles which should govern our care of the injured child and the background factors which influence fracture epidemiology. Knowing how to manage the multiply injured child and recognizing the one who has been non-accidentally injured are essential skills in our specialty. Injuries to the growth plate are not always easy to recognize and manage but, if we fail to do so, the long-term consequences may be serious. Succeeding chapters describe childhood injuries and fractures regionally. Conservative fracture management has not been forgotten amidst the plethora of newer methods of surgical fixation
