The answer is YES,
Injuries are more likely to effect people that are older and less healthy. It makes sense that if you have a weak spine, degenerated spine, past history of pain, poor health, over use syndromes, poor posture, and other factors that increase your risk of injury - then it makes sense that you can be injured. If you have a healthy and strong spine it makes sense that you have a less likelihood of being injured.
So if you have a injury prone spine - talk with your doctor about reducing your chance of injury and strengthening your back. You can see more at www.painatlanta.com.
