Back Pain Prevalent In The Elderly

An extremely high number of the elderly suffer from chronic back pain. According to a report in the Journal of Rheumatology, close to 50 percent suffer back pain in any given year and almost 25 percent report experiencing back pain "on most days."

Fortunately, chiropractic care is a natural and non-invasive treatment for people of all ages, even those in their 100's. If the condition is a more serious problem that chiropractic is unable to treat, chiropractors are thoroughly trained to make an immediate referral to the appropriate specialist.
