Even though general back pain may affect everyone at one point or another,
individuals over the age of 60 are more likely to suffer from pain due
to degeneration of the joints in the spine. Symptoms of back pain disorders
include pain and stiffness in the morning or evening, tenderness when
pressed, pain during sleep, leg pain when walking or standing, as well
as weakness or numbness. It’s important to recognize the differences
in the type of pain and their symptoms in order to get effective treatment.
