Exercise to Strengthen Muscle in Women Helps with Malverne Back Pain Relief

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!


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.


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 point!
