And Now for some news ….
Spinal pain and its impact on older people
The term ‘spinal pain’ collectively includes the cervical, thoracic and lumbosacral regions of the spine.
The majority of older people experience spinal pain, and with an increasing proportion of older people, the prevalence of spinal conditions are expected to increase in the coming decades.
Musculoskeletal conditions of the spine in the older patient commonly include osteoarthritis and spinal stenosis, and the result of these degenerative diseases includes pain, stiffness and a decreased ability to engage in everyday activities.
More than just the burden of pain, spinal pain has a significant considerable impact on the well-being and independence of older people within the community.
Spinal pain is poorly managed, and knowledge of safe and effective treatment strategies are lacking because of the exclusion of older people in clinical research.
Spinal pain in older people is a global health problem; the physical and personal impact of spinal directly threatens efforts to support healthy ageing.

The Effectiveness and Safety of Manual Therapy on Pain and Disability in Older Persons With Chronic Low Back Pain
The aim of this study published in the Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics, was to perform a systematic review of the literature of the effectiveness and safety of manual therapy interventions on pain and disability in older persons with chronic low back pain (LBP).
A literature search of 4 electronic databases was performed. Inclusion criteria included randomized controlled trials of manual therapy interventions on older persons who had chronic LBP.
The search identified 405 articles, and 38 full-text articles were assessed.
The study concluded that a limited number of studies have investigated the effectiveness and safety of manual therapy in the management of older people with chronic LBP.
The current evidence to make firm clinical recommendations is limited.
Research with appropriately designed trials to investigate the effectiveness and safety of manual therapy interventions in older persons with chronic LBP is required.
