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

Low back pain in older women requires some attention. Researchers and chiropractic back pain specialists like your Millville chiropractor at Wilson Family Chiropractic provide that attention! Women with back pain are a special group of our chiropractic practice with whom we are happy to work!


A recent study reported that low back pain in older women stems from abdominal truck muscle weakness. The women included in this study also experienced reduced mobility function. Even their knee extensor muscle strength was weak. What links these issues together? Muscle. Researchers explained that muscle weakness directly tied low back pain, malnutrition, and reduced mobility function in older women. The good news was highlighted that exercise enhanced these factors. (1) Wilson Family Chiropractic  witnesses over and over the benefit of exercise for our Millville back pain patients.


Millville chiropractic patients with back pain desire pain relief. That’s the objective of care. Our patients often see other healthcare providers who recommend options like oral NSAIDs (number needed to treat (NNT) is 7 meaning 7 patients need to be treated for 1 patient to report benefit) and SNRIs like duloxetine (NNT: 10) and exercise (NNT: 7). A recent study found that these options many times deliver clinically meaningful pain decrease as demonstrated by the above number-needed-to-treat stats. Which works in the long run though? Exercise. The researchers wrote that the one intervention that showed sustained benefit after the study’s intervention time period came to an end was exercise. (2) We present this to encourage exercise for all our Millville back pain (and neck pain) patients. For purposes of this article on women with low back pain, Wilson Family Chiropractic urges our older female patients to exercise. It is central to the chiropractic treatment plan that involves simple exercises as the beginning point!
