Exercise to Strengthen Muscle in Women Helps with Tonawanda Back Pain Relief

Low back pain in older women demands some attention. Researchers and chiropractic back pain specialists like your Tonawanda chiropractor at Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation provide that attention! Women who experience back pain are a special subset of our chiropractic practice with whom we are happy to work!


A recent study reported that low back pain in older women is linked to abdominal truck muscle weakness. The women described in this study also experienced decreased mobility function. Even their knee extensor muscle strength was weak. What links these concerns together? Muscle. Researchers explained that muscle weakness clearly linked low back pain, malnutrition, and decreased mobility function in older women. The good news was emphasized that exercise enhanced these factors. (1) Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation  sees over and over the benefit of exercise for our Tonawanda back pain patients.


Tonawanda chiropractic patients with back pain desire pain relief. That’s the goal of care. Our patients frequently try other healthcare options like oral NSAIDs (number needed to treat (NNT) is 7 meaning 7 patients need to be treated for one patient to experience benefit) and SNRIs like duloxetine (NNT: 10) and exercise (NNT: 7). A recent study found that these options many times deliver clinically meaningful pain reduction as shown by the above number-needed-to-treat stats. Which works over time though? Exercise. The researchers wrote that the one intervention that demonstrated sustained benefit after the study’s intervention time period ended was exercise. (2) We share this to foster the practice of exercise for all our Tonawanda back pain (and neck pain) patients. For purposes of this article about women with low back pain, Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation encourages our older women patients to exercise. It is central to the chiropractic treatment plan that involves simple exercises as the starting point!
