Low back pain in older women demands some
attention. Researchers and chiropractic back pain specialists like your
Murfreesboro chiropractor at Most Chiropractic Clinic provide
that attention! Women who suffer back pain are a
special subset of our chiropractic practice with whom we are
happy to work!
OLDER WOMEN AND Murfreesboro BACK PAIN
A recent report shared that low back
pain among 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 described that muscle weakness clearly
tied low back pain, malnutrition, and decreased
mobility function in older women. The good news was highlighted
that exercise improved these issues. (1) Most Chiropractic Clinic witnesses over and over the benefit of exercise for our Murfreesboro back pain patients.
EXERCISE AND BACK PAIN RELIEF
Murfreesboro 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 meaning sever patients need to be treated for 1
patient to experience benefit) and SNRIs like duloxetine (NNT: 10)
and exercise (NNT: 7). A new study found that these
options often deliver clinically meaningful pain decrease
as demonstrated by the above number-needed-to-treat statistics.
Which works over time though? Exercise. The researchers wrote
that the single 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 Murfreesboro back pain (and neck
pain) patients. Since this is an article focused
on women with low back pain, Most Chiropractic Clinic encourages
our older women patients
to exercise. It is central to the chiropractic treatment
plan that includes simple exercises as the beginning
