Is Back Pain Inevitable As I Age?

Grandma always said, “Gettin’ old ain’t for sissies!” but that doesn’t mean lower back pain is inevitable as we get older.

Lower back pain interferes with everything we do in our lives. Additionally, it deeply affects our quality of life. Most of us see back pain as “just one of those things” that happen as we get older. Some of this discomfort is the result of developing arthritis, degenerative discs in the spine. It can also be the effects of a lifetime of poor posture.
