Low back pain in older women demands some
attention. Researchers and chiropractic back pain specialists like your
Severna Park chiropractor at Back And Neck Care Center offer attention! Women who experience back pain are a
special group of our chiropractic practice with whom we love to work!
OLDER WOMEN AND Severna Park BACK PAIN
A recent report shared that low back
pain among older women stems from 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 explained that muscle weakness clearly
tied low back pain, malnutrition, and reduced
mobility function in older women. The good news was emphasized
that exercise improved these factors. (1) Back And Neck Care Center sees over and over the benefit of exercise for our Severna Park back pain patients.
EXERCISE AND BACK PAIN RELIEF
Severna Park chiropractic patients with back pain seek
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 indicating sever patients need to be treated for one
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 reduction
as shown by the above number-needed-to-treat stats.
Which works over time though? Exercise. The researchers explained
that the only intervention that showed
sustained benefit after the study’s intervention time period came to an end
was exercise. (2) We present this to encourage exercise for all our Severna Park back pain (and neck
pain) patients. For purposes of this article
on women with low back pain, Back And Neck Care Center urges
our older female patients
to exercise. It’s part of the chiropractic treatment
plan that incorporates simple exercises as the beginning
