See details: It is likely an acute lumbosacral strain. Forget the chiropractor. A 16 year old needs a detailed evaluation to determine the cause of recurrent back pain. See a rheumatologist or orthopedist. ...Read more

See doc.: If you have had continuous pain as noted it would be wise to get a chest xray and lab testing to evaluate an air leak in your lung or a blood clot. ...Read more
