Sadly, elderly people usually feel pain in their ankles, back, legs and knees. This is particularly true for those who lead an inactive life and spend most of their time sitting.
There are a number of conditions which can cause pain in the joints including strains, sprains, bursitis, gout, osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis and so on.
When it comes to back pain, it usually passes with time and about 50 % of patients feel better in a few weeks and about 90 % feel better within the course of 90 days. Nevertheless, those who are afflicted with chronic pain in the back may experience difficulty running their everyday activities and even experience difficulty when standing, sitting or lying down.
