Low back pain in older women demands some
attention. Researchers and chiropractic back pain specialists like your
Auburn chiropractor at Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. give it! Women who experience back pain are a
special subset of our chiropractic practice with whom we are
happy to work!
OLDER WOMEN AND Auburn BACK PAIN
A recent study reported that low back
pain in older women is linked to abdominal truck
muscle weakness. The women described in this study also
experienced decreased mobility function. Even their knee extensor
muscle strength was weak. What links these issues together?
Muscle. Researchers described that muscle weakness clearly
linked low back pain, malnutrition, and reduced
mobility function in older women. The good news was highlighted
that exercise enhanced these factors. (1) Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. witnesses over and over the benefit of exercise for our Auburn back pain patients.
EXERCISE AND BACK PAIN RELIEF
Auburn 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 indicating 7 patients need to be treated for 1
patient to experience benefit) and SNRIs like duloxetine (NNT: 10)
and exercise (NNT: 7). A recent study reported that these
options many times deliver clinically meaningful pain decrease
as shown by the above number-needed-to-treat statistics.
Which works over time though? Exercise. The researchers explained
that the single intervention that demonstrated
sustained benefit after the study’s intervention time period ended
was exercise. (2) We share this to foster the
practice of exercise for all our Auburn back pain (and neck
pain) patients. Since this is an article focused
on women with low back pain, Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. encourages
our older female patients
to exercise. It’s central to the chiropractic treatment
plan that includes simple exercises as the beginning
