Interface between back pain and aging

Jonathan Loro Pessin, Ângelo José Gonçalves Bos

Abstract


Aims: It was realized a narrative and comprehensive review with studies and researches about the phenomenon of low back pain and its involvement in the process of human aging.

Source of data: It were used the following databases: MEDLINE, SciELO, LILACS and Bireme, with the mesh terms “low back pain”, “senile low back pain” e “chronic low back pain”, for the period from 1996 to 2012.

Summary of findings: Were selected and analyzed 27 references, which showed a strong relation between low back pain and decreased quality of life of the elderly, which results from the interaction of sociodemographic factors (age, sex, income and education), behavioral (smoking and physical inactivity), daily activities (heavy physical work, vibration, vicious posture and repetitive movements) and other factors (obesity and psychological morbidity).

Conclusions: Despite the magnitude of the social and economic impact, pointed in international studies, in Brazil there are few studies on the prevalence of low back pain in older adults. This fact complicates the awareness of health professionals, the allocation of human and material resources, and the creation of strategies for the control of low back pain in this population, making the emerging need for epidemiological studies with this approach.
