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

Low back pain in older women requires some attention. Researchers and chiropractic back pain specialists like your Lynchburg chiropractor at Palmer Chiropractic Center 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 Lynchburg BACK PAIN

A recent study reported that low back pain among 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 issues together? Muscle. Researchers described that muscle weakness clearly tied low back pain, malnutrition, and reduced mobility function in older women. The good news was emphasized that exercise enhanced these factors.

EXERCISE AND BACK PAIN RELIEF

Lynchburg chiropractic patients with back pain want pain relief. That is the objective of care. Our patients often 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 1 patient to report benefit) and SNRIs like duloxetine (NNT: 10) and exercise (NNT: 7). A new study found that these options many times deliver clinically meaningful pain reduction as demonstrated by the above number-needed-to-treat stats. Which works over time though? Exercise. The researchers wrote 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 Lynchburg back pain (and neck pain) patients. For purposes of this article about women with low back pain, Palmer Chiropractic Center encourages our female patients who are a little older to exercise. It is part of the chiropractic treatment plan that incorporates simple exercises as the beginning point!
