Low back pain in older women requires some
attention. Researchers and chiropractic back pain specialists like your
Malverne chiropractor at Malverne Health & Wellness offer attention! Women who suffer back pain are a
special group of our chiropractic practice with whom we are
happy to work!
OLDER WOMEN AND Malverne BACK PAIN
A recent study reported that low back
pain in older women is linked to abdominal truck
muscle weakness. The women included 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 directly
linked low back pain, malnutrition, and reduced
mobility function in older women. The good news was highlighted
that exercise improved these factors. (1) Malverne Health & Wellness witnesses over and over the benefit of exercise for our Malverne back pain patients.
EXERCISE AND BACK PAIN RELIEF
Malverne chiropractic patients with back pain seek
pain relief. That’s the aim of care. Our
patients frequently try
other healthcare options like oral NSAIDs (number needed to treat (NNT) is
7 meaning 7 patients need to be treated for one
patient to report 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 demonstrated by the above number-needed-to-treat stats.
Which works in the long run 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 Malverne back pain (and neck
pain) patients. For purposes of this article
about women with low back pain, Malverne Health & Wellness urges
our older women patients
to exercise. It is part of the chiropractic treatment
plan that includes simple exercises as the beginning
