Low Back Pain is one of the most common musculoskeletal conditions experienced by older adults. Often Low Back pain leads to inactivity, poor posture, compensations, and poor movement patterns. For older adults, inactivity can lead to decreased strength, poor balance, increased risk of falls and decline in health status. An article titled “Paradigm Shift in Geriatric Low Back Pain Management: Integrating Influences, Experiences, and Consequences” elaborates on the consequences of Low back pain resulting in decreased activity levels which can spark a negative downward cycle of health risks leading to physical decline and morbidity.
