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!
OLDER WOMEN AND Tonawanda BACK PAIN
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.
EXERCISE AND BACK PAIN RELIEF
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
