EXPERIENCING BACK PAIN AND LEG PAIN AS AN OLDER ADULT
Experiencing back pain or leg pain (sciatica)
when you are older is unique compared with a
time – like most things in life – when you experienced back pain
or sciatica as a younger person. There is a range of types
of sciatica patients – those who have mild leg pain to those
with high pain, disability and timeframe of having it.
Researchers found that most improvement for pain and
disability occurred in the first 4 months for all. At one year,
45% (mild) to 27% (high pain/disability) of the patients described
recovery at one year. (1) Sciatica affects about 25% of us.
Typical descriptions are of lower limb pain that is more
bothersome than the lower back pain. Numbness and motor weakness may also
join the leg pain. The usual care options
are pain medications of all kinds from NSAIDS to opioids without much proof for their benefit. Further,
most clinical trials for these meds for managing the pain of sciatica don’t include older people. (2) OrthoIllinois Chiropractic offers a
non-drug option for older adult back pain and leg pain that has
research support for its utilization and
documentation of its value for that life-changing experience
of back and sciatic pain.
BACK PAIN AND SCIATICA ALTER LIFE
Patients describe to researchers that “It has
changed my whole life.” “It” is chronic low back pain which is back pain that persists
beyond 3 months. Specifically, a recent article explains
that back pain sufferers articulate that it harms
their sense of self, causes them to feel like they are trapped
in a body that just will not work any longer,
complicates family relationships, keeps them working in pain,
and makes them feel socially and recreationally repressed.
(3) OrthoIllinois Chiropractic has witnessed this throughout its
years of caring for McHenry back pain. Back pain
disrupts life. OrthoIllinois Chiropractic offers
hope with its Cox Technic system of spine pain management. Often,
OrthoIllinois Chiropractic hears from McHenry back pain patients that just
50% relief would be really very gratifying, permitting
them to return to their lives.
