Arthritis and Back Pain

Amir Mahajer, Interventional Spine Specialist at Baptist Health Neuroscience Center, explains how arthritis is related to back pain. “In the elderly there are arthritic changes in the back. So, at about age 30 we start to see changes, like little bit disc issue’s ligamentum flavum, which are the ligaments of the spine”.
According to Mahajer, it is important to identify what is normal aging of the spine and what is a pathology or a problem in the spine depending on the patient’s symptoms.
