Chiropractic Care Offers Pain Relief for Seniors
At a time when they should be enjoying life, lower back pain causes limitations on many seniors. Many seniors spent their earlier decades engaging in activities that caused stress to their lower backs. Their occupations may have required physical labor that affected their back. Even jobs where they were sedentary could still cause lower back pain.
Lower back pain can affect seniors’ ability to carry out daily tasks. Research has shown that one in five adults in their 60s currently has back pain and the risk increases with age.
The most common cause of back pain in seniors is misalignment and/or improper movement of the bones of the lower spine (vertebrae). If the vertebrae are not in proper alignment, they can pinch spinal nerves and cause irritation of the spinal joints.
