The 2019 Back Pain and Osteoporosis White Paper outlines the many different causes of back pain, including:

… and more

Your White Paper will also include details on your best surgical options if less invasive treatment options aren’t giving you the kind of back pain relief you need.

For people who have sciatica-searing or stabbing pain radiating from the back or buttock into the leg-driving a car can be especially uncomfortable and painful. You’ll find measures you can take that might help.

Learn to avoid back pain. In addition to correct posture and exercise, many other aspects of your daily life influence the health of your back. Some people simply need to improve the techniques they use to perform everyday activities-lifting heavy objects, playing sports, or even getting in and out of a chair, for instance. Other people will need to avoid certain activities altogether. Get advice from the experts.

If you have low back pain, find out why drugs should take a back seat to other types of low back pain treatment. This is especially true if your doctor subscribes to recommendations from the professional group discussed in the pages of the White Paper.

In the second section of the 2019 Back Pain and Osteoporosis White Paper, you’ll get a thorough overview of osteoporosis, a common cause of hip and spine fractures.

Osteoporosis prevention relies on a three-pronged approach: Exercise, proper nutrition, and-when appropriate-medication. Get advice you can follow.

Each year, more than 300,000 Americans ages 65 and older are hospitalized after a hip fracture-a break in the top of the thighbone (the femur) below the hip joint-according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Learn how you can regain your independence after a hip fracture.

Preventing Future Falls. Along with bone-strengthening medications, preventing falls is a crucial component of fracture prevention in people with osteoporosis. Find out about the steps you can take to reduce the likelihood of falling.

A key factor in falls is poor balance, which tends to become more and more of a problem as people age. Learn smart strategies to help keep you steady on your feet.
