What Activities Can Cause Back Pain?

As we age, we still want to have fun the way we used to. However, as our bodies get older, it can be hard to enjoy those activities without experiencing pain. At OLSS, we want to do whatever we can to ensure you are pain-free and can get back to your activities as soon as possible. However, it can sometimes help to avoid certain plans or perhaps do them less if you are experiencing pain.

Some activities that may cause back pain are:

  • Excessive walking
  • Cycling
  • Racketball
  • Golf
  • Tennis
  • Excessive or strenuous swimming

We understand that these are the things you love to do, and OLSS is nearby to ensure you can continue to do your activities without pain. If any of your favorite activities seem to be causing you pain, you can try to cut back on them and let yourself rest more often. If that doesn’t work, it’s time to come see our expert spine and back doctors to assess how we can help.

How Seeing a Back Doctor Will Improve Your Activities

Our specialists offer confidence and peace of mind when it comes to participating in your favorite sports and activities at The Villages. After speaking to your doctor, you will know what works for you and what doesn’t. You’ll feel excited to do the things you love, knowing that you have help with any pain that may result. Your doctor might tell you to attend physical therapy or to take some pain relieving medication before or after your activities. At OLSS, we think of the patient first. If we don’t have to do surgery, we won’t! But, if it will improve your quality of life, we may offer one of the following minimally invasive surgeries:

If your body requires any of these surgeries to improve your pain and therefore help you enjoy your activities more, you can trust your OLSS doctor to be there for you every step of the way. They will be there to answer any questions you have before, during, and even after your treatment is done.
