Why do I have pain?

Back pain can occur at any time for almost any reason. As we age, our bodies begin to grow weak and frail, sometimes resulting in disease.

Almost everyone will have back pain at some point in their life; it is more prevalent in people 40 to 80 years old, and in women. Back pain is due in large part to the aging process, but also as a result of a sedentary life style with too little (sometimes with too much) exercise. The risk of experiencing low-back pain from disc disease or spinal degeneration increases with age. Some common conditions we see include:

  • Herniated Discs
  • Spondylosis
  • Spondylolisthesis
  • Sciatica
  • Spinal Stenosis
  • Degenerative Disc Disease
