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 Moses Chiropractic offer attention! Women who experience back pain are a special group of our chiropractic practice with whom we are happy to work!


A recent study reported that low back pain in older women stems from abdominal truck muscle weakness. The women included in this study also experienced decreased mobility function. Even their knee extensor muscle strength was weak. What links these concerns together? Muscle. Researchers explained that muscle weakness clearly linked low back pain, malnutrition, and reduced mobility function in older women. The good news was highlighted that exercise improved these issues.

West Palm Beach chiropractic patients with back pain seek pain relief. That’s the aim of care. Our patients frequently 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 one patient to experience benefit) and SNRIs like duloxetine (NNT: 10) and exercise (NNT: 7). A new study reported that these options often deliver clinically meaningful pain reduction as shown by the above number-needed-to-treat statistics. Which works in the long run though? Exercise. The researchers explained that the only intervention that demonstrated sustained benefit after the study’s intervention time period ended was exercise. (2) We present this to encourage exercise for all our West Palm Beach back pain (and neck pain) patients. Since this is an article focused about women with low back pain, Moses Chiropractic urges our female patients who are a little older to exercise. It is central to the chiropractic treatment plan that involves simple exercises as the beginning point!
