Exercise to Strengthen Muscle in Women Helps with Severna Park Back Pain Relief

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!


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.

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 point!
