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

Low back pain in older women demands some attention. Researchers and chiropractic back pain specialists like your West Palm Beach chiropractor at Chiropractic Care give it! Women who suffer back pain are a special group of our chiropractic practice with whom we love 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 issues together? Muscle. Researchers described that muscle weakness clearly linked low back pain, malnutrition, and reduced mobility function in older women. The good news was emphasized that exercise improved these issues. (1) Chiropractic Care  sees over and over the benefit of exercise for our West Palm Beach back pain patients.


West Palm Beach chiropractic patients with back pain desire pain relief. That’s the aim 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 one patient to report 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 shown by the above number-needed-to-treat statistics. Which works in the long run though? Exercise. The researchers wrote that the only intervention that showed sustained benefit after the study’s intervention time period came to an end was exercise. (2) We share this to foster the practice of exercise for all our West Palm Beach back pain (and neck pain) patients. Since this is an article focused on women with low back pain, Chiropractic Care encourages our older female patients to exercise. It is part of the chiropractic treatment plan that incorporates simple exercises as the beginning point!
