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

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!


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.


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 point!
