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

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!


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.


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 female patients who are a little older to exercise. It is central to the chiropractic treatment plan that includes simple exercises as the beginning point!
