Back Pain In Older Adults – What Do You Know?

This year’s BackCare Awareness Week which runs from 8th to 12th October focuses on back pain in older adults.The reason to focus the campaign on this demographic is due to the results of research highlighting the lack of awareness that this group has about the cause and effect of back pain and pain management.

Here at Witney Chiropractic Clinic our chiropractor treats many patients who fall into the 60+ years age group. This is not that surprising as back pain is one of the major disabling health conditions among older adults aged 60 years and older. Many causes of lower back pain are age-related with physical and psychosocial changes.

Very often people in this age group believe that reaching for pain killers and resting their back will help them if they are suffering from back pain. However, research has shown that these two things may not be as effective as they believe they are going to be.

Chiropractic treatment along with gentle exercise can be effective treatment for back pain.

If you are suffering back pain then why not book an appointment with our experienced chiropractor who is here to help you.
