There have been rapid expansions to service their needs, followed by rapid contractions. School systems and other infrastructure were overbuilt, only to be torn down or repurposed.

As the Baby Boomers came into the workforce, their taxes generated vast sums of money to support the Social Security and Medicare systems. These benefits radically expanded as there was no apparent end to this growth. Now as the Baby Boomers reach retirement, the US healthcare system must prepare for the impending explosion from increasing healthcare needs with fewer workers to pick up the bills.

In the January 2013 issue of the Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics, researchers Smith, Davis, Stano, and Whedon published the results from analyzing data from a longitudinal Medical Expenditures Panel Survey of 71,838 respondents. They used this data to determine the future impact of an aging population on the trends in back pain and chronicity, along with estimates on the costs for treatment.

The researchers surveyed respondents for back pain at 4 to 6 month intervals across 2 year periods during 2000-2007. The respondents were divided into 5 separate groups: Elders (born before
