Physical Child Abuse - Can it Cause Spondylolysis? Spondylolisthesis??
I have read that Spondylolysis has unknown causes.
I have read that Spondylolisthesis is a resulting problem.
Are there any documented cases of this as it would relate to physical child abuse?
Can it be the result of negligence or abuse when it occurs in teens?
What exterenal forces imposed on a childs back would physically cause this or a broken back?
600 lbs? 800 lbs? 1000 lbs? And for how long? 30min? 1 hr? 2 hr?
Typically, what is the physical breaking point of a child's back that is 5ft tall and 95lb in weight?
And wouldn't that type of physical stress and abuse manifest itself as the condition known as Spondylolysis and Spondylolisthesis? if it was severe enough?
