Getting older is part of life, but age-related back pain doesn’t have to be.
If you’re under 50 and haven’t had a back injury, your back pain is likely the result of sitting for long stretches or poor posture. Sitting for extended periods and poor posture can put too much pressure on the discs in your back and neck, according to our Stoke on Trent chiropractor.
Older adults, on the other hand, are more likely to suffer from back pain from conditions like arthritis.
Strength-training and cardio exercise are both helpful in reducing the symptoms of back pain. They increase blood flow, and help to build your core muscles, which can support the spine and reduce pressure.
Remember it’s never too late to improve the health of your spine – no matter how old you are.
