Low Back Pain in Older Adults

Special Events

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. Join Pain Specialist Dr. Todd Koppel as he reviews the specific signs of spinal conditions, and the latest options in treatment and prevention for seniors with back pain.
