Low back pain in older women demands some
attention. Researchers and chiropractic back pain specialists like your
Plainville chiropractor at Layden Chiropractic provide
that attention! Women who experience back pain are a
special group of our chiropractic practice with whom we love to work!
OLDER WOMEN AND Plainville 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 links 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 emphasized
that exercise enhanced these issues. (1) Layden Chiropractic sees over and over the benefit of exercise for our Plainville back pain patients.
EXERCISE AND BACK PAIN RELIEF
Plainville chiropractic patients with back pain seek
pain relief. That’s the aim of care. Our
patients frequently try
other healthcare options like oral NSAIDs (number needed to treat (NNT) is
7 meaning 7 patients need to be treated for one
patient to report benefit) and SNRIs like duloxetine (NNT: 10)
and exercise (NNT: 7). A new study reported that these
options often deliver clinically meaningful pain reduction
as shown by the above number-needed-to-treat statistics.
Which works in the long run though? Exercise. The researchers explained
that the single intervention that showed
sustained benefit after the study’s intervention time period ended
was exercise. (2) We present this to encourage exercise for all our Plainville back pain (and neck
pain) patients. Since this is an article focused
on women with low back pain, Layden Chiropractic 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 starting
