Abstract:

ABSTRACT

 

The elderly generation, coexists with the rest of the population of the world (Jared T. Scott 2010).They suffer a great deal of several kinds of pain including lower back pain. In most cases this condition in the elderly is not managed by use of nursing interventions rather managed with other medical remedies, and yet the client spend most of their times with nurses, than, other health workers. This case study addressed the gap that could be filled by nurses by using innovative means in nursing to relieve pain of lower back in the elderly by ideal assessment then given specified nursing interventions to a specific individual, so as to avoid disabilities.Sackett et al (2000).

Conclusion

Disabilities in elderly related conditions can be assessed and managed by nursing intervention hence preventing disabilities in the geriatric patients.

Recommendations

Nurses needs to be trained with more contemporary skills in assessing LBP, suggesting that the knowledge of nurse with higher qualification is paramount to meet the fourth coming challenges in the management of the elderly with LBP.
