Causes of Age Related Pains

Aging causes general degeneration of joints in the spine, which triggers back pain. There is also a link between aging and problems with coordination and balance. This is largely due to the degeneration of structures known as mechanoreceptors. Located in the spine, mechanoreceptors play an important role in balance and coordination. Mechanoreceptors become impaired with time, and as they degrade, coordination and balance problems can arise.
