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!
OLDER WOMEN AND West Palm Beach BACK PAIN
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. (1) Moses Chiropractic 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 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
