How to Avoid Waist Pain in Your 60s, 70s, and Beyond

Lower back pain or waist discomfort is a common complaint among adults in their 60s, 70s, and older, and it's often caused by the everyday tasks they undertake or continue to perform in their line of work. I'll tell you how to prevent waist pain in this column, per a Cleveland Clinic publication.

1. One of the simple and easy ways to stop waist pain in people in their 60s, 70s, and older is to lose excess body fat. If you are overweight due to excess body fat, it can put additional strain on your spinal cord, which may result in back pain, discomfort around the waist, and other aging symptoms. As a result, you need to exercise more if you want to delay the onset of this health problem as you age.

2. Another simple way to prevent waist pain in old age is to avoid routine daily heavy lifting. These heavy objects harm your bones and put more strain on your waist and spinal cord. You should avoid lifting anything that is excessively heavy for you as a result.

3. You should also try your hardest to stop smoking on a regular basis because nicotine from tobacco products, including cigarettes, can cause disc and spinal cord degeneration.
