It is helpful to be aware of NMS and systemic conditions
that tend to occur during particular decades of life. Signs and
symptoms associated with that condition take on greater significance when age is considered.
For example, prostate problems usually occur in men after the fourth decade (age 40+). A past medical history of prostate cancer in a 55-year-old man with sciatica of unknown cause should raise the suspicions of the therapist.
These are some of the age related systemic and NMS pathologic conditions.
