Low back pain in older women requires some
attention. Researchers and chiropractic back pain specialists like your
Fort Wayne chiropractor at Aaron Chiropractic Clinic offer attention! Women who suffer back pain are a
special subset of our chiropractic practice with whom we are
happy to work!
OLDER WOMEN AND Fort Wayne BACK PAIN
A recent study reported that low back
pain among older women stems from abdominal truck
muscle weakness. The women included 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
tied low back pain, malnutrition, and decreased
mobility function in older women. The good news was emphasized
that exercise enhanced these factors. (1) Aaron Chiropractic Clinic witnesses over and over the benefit of exercise for our Fort Wayne back pain patients.
EXERCISE AND BACK PAIN RELIEF
Fort Wayne chiropractic patients with back pain want
pain relief. That’s the goal of care. Our
patients frequently see other healthcare providers who recommend options like oral NSAIDs (number needed to treat (NNT) is
7 meaning 7 patients need to be treated for 1
patient to report benefit) and SNRIs like duloxetine (NNT: 10)
and exercise (NNT: 7). A recent study found that these
options many times deliver clinically meaningful pain reduction
as shown by the above number-needed-to-treat stats.
Which works over time though? Exercise. The researchers explained
that the only intervention that showed
sustained benefit after the study’s intervention time period ended
was exercise. (2) We share this to encourage exercise for all our Fort Wayne back pain (and neck
pain) patients. Since this is an article focused
on women with low back pain, Aaron Chiropractic Clinic urges
our older female patients
to exercise. It is part of the chiropractic treatment
plan that incorporates simple exercises as the starting
