The Aging Spine


October 16-17, 2019 | Rome, Italy

Akhil Chhatre

Johns Hopkins University, USA

Keynote: J Neurol Clin Neurosci

Abstract :

Statement of the Problem: Back pain is the number two reason to see a physician in the ambulatory setting in the United States. Expectedly, this yields tremendous pressures on the public and private sectors as it relates to cost, safety, morbidity/mortality and lifestyle. There is a lack of awareness among the general population as well as providers about the mechanisms involved as it relates to the degenerative cascade of Spondylosis. In addition to cognizance, there are prophylactic strategies to employ to slow, improve and even reverse this pathophysiology. This keynote discussion will stimulate the audience to raise and highlight the issue at hand, explore mechanisms of progression and provoke thoughts on treatment, prevention and reversal.
