Backcare Awareness Week 2019

Theme – Back pain in Older Adults

Back pain is one of the major disabling health conditions among older adults aged 60 years and older. Many causes of lower back pain are age-related with physical and psychosocial changes. There is a distinct lack of awareness, especially in older adults to the causes and effects of back pain and pain management. BackCare would like to provide information, latest updates, design new booklets and posters to shine a light on the subject during its BackCare Awareness week on the second week of October 2018.

Existing evidence suggests that prevalence rates of severe and chronic low back pain increase with older age. As compared to working-age adults, older adults are more likely to develop lower back pain like osteoporotic vertebral fractures, tumors, spinal infection, and lumbar spinal stenosis
