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!
OLDER WOMEN AND West Palm Beach 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 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.
EXERCISE AND BACK PAIN RELIEF
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
