It happens to the best of us.
Our hair greys if we're lucky enough to keep it.
We're not quite as fast as we used to be.
It takes us a little longer than usual to remember things.
It's inevitable; our clocks never stop ticking, and we all get older.
In the 1960s the average American woman lived to be 73 with the average male making it to 66.
These days we are all living longer, with women making it to 82 and most men making it to the ripe old age of 76.
Since we're living longer, most people also want those extra years to be healthy and productive.
It helps to regularly visit a back pain doctor too.
Nobody wants to spend their last days withering away in a nursing home, a shell of their former selves.
So we're doing all we can to maintain our health so we can enjoy our golden years.
One of our most fragile body parts, and the one that typically shows its age first is our backs.
As a collection of bones, discs, and muscles that keep us upright and moving, when our back is bad, it affects our entire bodies.
To maximize our chances of remaining active and mobile in our old age, there are a few things we should do to keep our backs healthy.
We'll talk about them below.
