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