Exercise to Strengthen Muscle in Women Helps with Fernandina Beach Back Pain Relief

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!


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.


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 point!
