Low back pain in older women requires some
attention. Researchers and chiropractic back pain specialists like your
Manahawkin chiropractor at Manahawkin Chiropractic Center provide
that attention! Women who suffer back pain are a
special group of our chiropractic practice with whom we love to work!
OLDER WOMEN AND Manahawkin 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 decreased 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 factors. (1) Manahawkin Chiropractic Center sees over and over the benefit of exercise for our Manahawkin back pain patients.
EXERCISE AND BACK PAIN RELIEF
Manahawkin chiropractic patients with back pain want
pain relief. That is the goal of care. Our
patients often see other healthcare providers who recommend 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 recent study found that these
options often deliver clinically meaningful pain decrease
as demonstrated by the above number-needed-to-treat stats.
Which works over time though? Exercise. The researchers explained
that the single intervention that showed
sustained benefit after the study’s intervention time period came to an end
was exercise. (2) We share this to encourage exercise for all our Manahawkin back pain (and neck
pain) patients. For purposes of this article
on women with low back pain, Manahawkin Chiropractic Center encourages
our female patients who are a little older
to exercise. It is central to the chiropractic treatment
plan that incorporates simple exercises as the beginning
