Backbones Young & Old


How many people complain of back pain as they get older? Seems like everyone doesn’t it?  Actually, 90% of all Americans will suffer back pain at some point. According to the Department of Health and Human Services it is the 2nd leading cause of doctor’s visits.


Now, we know that ALL kids fall down as they are learning to walk, run, ride a bike, play on the monkey bars, or most other activities. They have sports injuries and we get told- “Kids just bounce right back.”


Then there is the 1st car crash, but it's ok, it was only a little fender bender.

Next, we ship the kids off to school and ask them to sit at a desk and hunch over books for 7 hours a day. They get older and the studies become more intense (and time consuming). Then, after schooling (college, too) many get jobs where they have to sit for 8 hours a day.


Take the static positioning for many years, add some injuries and a lack of exercise, throw in the Standard American Diet (SAD) and you have problems. But we have all been told that back problems are “a normal part of aging.” It seems like the age of the injury rather than the age of the body is the most significant factor.


For trusted, professional care and support, let Backbone help your family, friends and co-workers. We care for all spines of ALL AGES.
