Low back pain in older women requires some
attention. Researchers and chiropractic back pain specialists like your
Fernandina Beach chiropractor at Amelia Chiropractic Clinic give it! Women with back pain are a
special subset of our chiropractic practice with whom we are
happy to work!
OLDER WOMEN AND Fernandina Beach 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 reduced mobility function. Even their knee extensor
muscle strength was weak. What ties these concerns together?
Muscle. Researchers explained that muscle weakness clearly
tied low back pain, malnutrition, and decreased
mobility function in older women. The good news was highlighted
that exercise enhanced these issues. (1) Amelia Chiropractic Clinic witnesses over and over the benefit of exercise for our Fernandina Beach back pain patients.
EXERCISE AND BACK PAIN RELIEF
Fernandina Beach chiropractic patients with back pain want
pain relief. That is the objective of care. Our
patients often try
other healthcare options like oral NSAIDs (number needed to treat (NNT) is
7 indicating sever 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 reduction
as demonstrated by the above number-needed-to-treat statistics.
Which works in the long run though? Exercise. The researchers wrote
that the only intervention that demonstrated
sustained benefit after the study’s intervention time period came to an end
was exercise. (2) We present this to foster the
practice of exercise for all our Fernandina Beach back pain (and neck
pain) patients. Since this is an article focused
on women with low back pain, Amelia Chiropractic Clinic urges
our older women patients
to exercise. It’s part of the chiropractic treatment
plan that includes simple exercises as the starting
